I have a DOS program written in C which uses CTREE to access files. I use the Faircom ODBC driver to access the Ctree files from apps that I have written in ACCESS. The question is: Can I use something like ODBC so that my DOS program can access my tables that are actually stored  in ACCESS

No you can't (not unless the dos app can make calls to ODBC, if that is even possible).

ODBC is DLL based.  You can't call ODBC DLLS from the command line (I believe) off the bat.  You may be able to tweak this with some c or assembly, but good luck!
