I found "Virtual PC 3.0 with Windows 98" for $169.99.  I had the URL, but EE's stoopid server refused once again to receive the answer, and when I hit BkSpc to try again, the text that I had entered had 'evaporated...'

(I wish these guys would fix their equipment!)

No, there isn't.

The closest you can come is to use a Windows emulator on the Mac, and run the Access app in that emulator.  

The instruction sets at the core of PCs and Macs are altogether different, so an executable file for one is incompatible with the other.

An Access .mdb file is not an executable file, but is a data file, so in theory, you could use it on a Mac—IF you had an executable file that was written to utilize Access database files.

But there are no programs written to do that.  (There are ways to read and write Word documents, for example...)

Sorry to give bad news.  Why is it that you want to do this?

I'm sure you can find one on the web.  there are several, including an entire PC that plugs into the Mac's PCI slot.
