Hi,
   If you are using version 2 of the software, then it has an export functionality which you can use to export as CSV file and then import to Access.
  The other option is you will have three options while printing.
   1. Send to Print
   2. Send to Screen
   3. Send to Disk

If you choose disk, then you can choose the field separators and then export it to a file. Then you can import the file into MS-Access.

 Please let me know if you need any other detail.

Tried that.  Didn't recognize PFS 1.0.  :(

There isn't an extension for these database files.  Maybe I can add one to "trick" the converter into taking it in?   Anybody know what DB formats were popular back in the 80's?
