Hi Frank,
does ogr the conversation the other way round (shape2mdb) ?
I would need that....

> normal Microsoft Access ODBC driver - no ESRI software.
> This is built into the latest FWTools builds from:
>   http://fwtools.maptools.org/
> You could translate all the layers in a personal geodatabase
> to a directory of shapefiles like this (from the FWTools Shell):
>   ogr2ogr out_shape_dir mydata.mdb
> Some info on the driver is available at:
>   http://www.gdal.org/ogr/drv_pgeo.html
> The "Shape" column is reported as an OLE object but if read
> as a BLOB it matches the geometry format that appears in the .shp
> file of a shapefile.
> PS. Thanks for asking the question in a public forum.  It gives
> me an excuse to "toot my own horn".
