Microsoft Access databases are contained in a (.mdb) file.  To connect Seeq to this file, think of them like an Excel or csv file.  The .mdb files must be continuously imported it into an RDBMS, most naturally MSSQL as it is in the Microsoft software family.  After that, Seeq can connect to it via our SQL v2 connector.  The .mdb file import can be scripted/automated/scheduled, but it is basically like bringing an arbitrary file into MSSQL.  This link provides good instructions on the steps to import Access data into MSSQL: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/integration-services/import-export-data/connect-to-an-access-data-source-sql-server-import-and-export-wizard?view=sql-server-2017 (edited)
