How to import .odc files to Microsoft Access

I have 2 .odc files that contain the complete database  originally extracted from Microsoft Access (not sure what version/year)  So how do I go about opening them? Access 2013 does not recognize them.

I am not sure that Access can interpret .odc files.

From what I know, these are file types that "Excel" uses to import external data sources.

So you need to apply these files in/with MS Excel to get the Access data into Excel...

Then you can easily export the data to an Access database...
...or Open Access and import the data from excel...


But the Excel Experts will probably bet able to tell you more about the .odc files, and give instructions for their use.

Good day,

.ODC files handle database connections and store data source information, such as the name of the server, connection details, and so forth.
The ODC extension is also used with query files that allow users to share database queries with other users. In other words, ODC file type is not a database!

Microsoft Access saves information under the following file formats:
