You cannot open an Access DB directly with LO. You can connect to it using Base but you will only have access to tables and possibly some queries. 64-bit LO in Windows using Base to connect to Access has a problem.

See answer in this post for possible solutions -> I got error "The connection to the data source "DB file name" could not be established."
