You need to do this from within Visio.  I've used Visio Enterprise before to do it.  

If the drawing was done using a Database template, you should see a "Database" menu on the Visio toolbar when you open the drawing.  You can then choose "Generate" from the Database menu and then just follow the prompts to create an MDB file.

I don't think this feature is available except in the Enterprise Visio :(
