If I'm to leave Microsoft XP behind I need to work with my MS Access data files in Libreoffice Base or something similar.

How do I get LibreOffice Base to access MS Access 2003 data files?

You may need to install mdbtools from the ubuntu software center to be able to access Access files.

Simply open LibreOffice Base, and choose Open. Than change the filter to Any file (.) and choose your Accesss base file. However there may be some issues while importing bases.
