Please: can you have a look at this bugreport. What is your opinion?
That is a template for a database and not a database file. AFAIK, LibreOffice is not able to generate a database from such a template. So this would be a feature request.
If you generate a database from it with Microsoft Access 2007, then using LO 3.6.1 to connect to it via driver "MS Access 2007" the wizard hangs in step "Save". That has been reported in bug 53070.
Changed status to "NEW". IMHO no questions overtly respectively no further discussion necessary.

If this is the case, then it should indeed be a feature request instead of this bug report. Please advise on best way to close this bug report.
