How do I open a .accdb file on the mac?

Been sent an access 2007 database (.accdb) from the other side and don't know what to do with it. I have Office 2004 student and teacher edition but not iwork. Is there any way i can open this file without spending any money?

I did some poking and read that Openoffice or Neooffice will if you install a module called "Base".

Cheers. That was quick. All my googling turned up was stuff about how they just recently changed the file extension. That's great, thx.

I was frustrated by the lack of support for Access databases on the Mac as well, so I wrote a program to open them: MDB / ACCDB Viewer. You can buy it on the Mac App Store.

If you want a free solution, have a look at the Open Source MDB Tools. I think they should also be able to open accdb files.
