Is it an ESRI spatial database? I believe some work has been done to support .mdb in gdal, so it would be worth googling on that and or asking on the gdal mailing list.

Does anyone have any suggestions for dealing with mdb files, on either the Mac or Linux?  Preferably I would like to convert them to a Postgis database.  I see there is a package called mdbtools, though it does not seem to want to compile on the Mac and I have not tried on Linux yet.  But even if it does work will results be in a format that could be inserted into Postgis?

Thanks for any help,
