If you simply want to move data to an sql server, your best bet is to
use mdbtools to dump the database schema and records out to an .sql file
that you can then massage and import into whatever sql server you are

If you're looking for a way to use the access file directly, and
continue using it in MS Access, you might be able to get the odbc bridge
working (on windows of course), and communicate with it with pyodbc.
