If you mean that an instance of MS Access has to be running,
no, I don't think so. The ODBC driver for Access databases
knows how to open .mdb files itself. I've done this myself
recently, and it seems to work fine without having Access

This is perfect if the python ODBC driver can read the .mdb without
the need for it to be running elsewhere.
Thanks all for your help.
