I've searched the Internet for this, and everyone wants to know how to go the other way!

I gave Base a try, but it couldn't do what I needed, so I will go back to Access. However, I did create a bunch of tables with relationships etc in Base. Can I convert my LibreOffice Base file into a form I can open in Access?

Do you use the embedded HSQLDB or an external data base engine like MYSQL?

No this isn't possible. At best you can export your tables as a Calc file, save as Excel, then use Access to link to / open your Excel file

You can use ODBC to access them from a Windows computer.
