The simplest way is to link the tables to your Access database.  You won't get the best performance this way but you can try this first.
1) File |Get External Data | Link Tables...
2) Choose Files of Type:  ODBC Databases
3) Set up a File or Machine Data Source
4) Choose your Data Source and click OK
5) If it worked, you will be given a list of tables/views to which you may link
