    You can't use the Access file per se but Filemaker is a full relational database as is Access.
    You can't import Access files easily into Filemaker and visa vera - it would require ODBC connectivity however depending on the complexity of the data files it may be easier to export to a common format i.e. Excel. Of course this does not take functionality across with it.. just data.
