Excel can read from SQL Anywhere databases via Data - From Other
Sources - From Microsoft Query, etc. SQL Anywhere can write to Excel
spreadsheets via ODBC using Remote Data Access (proxy tables).

If by "mdb" you mean Microsoft Access, I *think* Access can do the
same as Excel, and SQL Anywhere can also do the proxy table thing.

Again, same answer for Oracle, although I'm just assuming Oracle can
read ODBC data sources.
