another MSSql to Access question

I have an old backup file from an MSSQL 2003 server.  The file was created with the "Backup Database"

Can I somehow import that into a access 2007 database?

The backup file would need to be restored to SQL Server. You would need to know the correct version (there is no SQL 2003) as you can only restore to a SQL Server of equal or high version. From there, you could connect to the back from Access and import the data.

sql 2003 would be Small Business Server, which contains a special sql server version.

apart from that, you can restore such a backup only into another sql server (same or higher version), and link from there from ms access .
