It is not possible to save a Base database in the MS Access format. The file structures are different. You can of course save a LO Writer document as a MS Word document as the programs use the Open Document Format. The format used by MS Access is propriety to MS.

Base cannot OPEN an MS Access file and Access cannot OPEN a Base file. You can however in a Base database link to the Tables in an Access database. You cannot gain access to the other components in the Access database – Forms, Reports etc. You can copy the Access Tables and save them in the Base database.
