We have a SQLite DataBase (.sqlite file) and we want to migrate its content into a new Microsoft Access Database compatible format such as “.mdb” or “.accdb”.
¿Do you have any suggestion about how to resolve this?

   You need Windows, but it works fine in a virtual machine (such as Virtualbox) if you’re on a Mac or Linux/BSD
    You will also need MS Access installed on this Windows box (I’ll be using Access 2007, so the menu labels might not look exactly as I say, but they are here)
    You will need to install the SQLite ODBC driver by Christian Werner
    Then, do not try to use the driver directly from Access (almost gave up the whole thing doing this way) but instead go to your Control Panel > ODBC Sources
    Create a new source (DSN) from here, pointing to your SQLite file (tested with a SQLite3 database, using the SQLite3 ODBC driver)
    Start Access, create a new database (tip: if you want to keep Access 2003 compatibility under Access 2007, replace the .accdb extension by .mdb in the “new filename” box
    Go to External Data > ODBC Sources > System sources and select the DSN you just created at previous step
    You’ll be prompted to select which tables to import, then start import
    You’re done

Connect SQLite database from Access via ODBC driver and import it as External data.
