The file format for an ACCESS database is NOT ACSII so the answer to your question is, you can't do it.  You can, however, use ODBC from your C program to access the ACCESS database (catchy, huh?).  My recommendation is to go and get a good book on ODBC since it's non-trivial.  The nice thing about using it is that once you get your program written, you won't need to change it is the database changes to Access 97, SQL-server, or even Oracle.  As long as there is an ODBC driver for the underlying database, your program will talk to it.
