Sure there is as long as you have access to the file. Try digging up file 
formats somewhere. MSDN (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library) would be the 
first choice, and then some hacking sites maybe... The data in an Access file 
is wrapped at least once. I don't know whether Access files are OLE Compound 
files, but that might also be the case, so then it would be double-wrapping. 

It seems that OpenOffice sources have all the M$ Office files fully 
documented (as code, at least) - see http://www.opensource.org.
