Hello Naomih,
I know the opposite process MDB–>OOB but know what you need but I think you can accomplish to this taks with the following:

  • Create a DSN that point to your OOB database
  • Create your Access Database
  • In the Tables view right click and select Import

At this point you should be able to read your OOB tables and have them imported in Access; yuo may check if the ID fields are kept or not.
I hope this helps.
Bye
