I'm a junior PM and learning many things.
Today, I should QA for a project and the task included the term base file with MDB format.
I'll do the QA with QA Distiller, but I can't use the MDB formatted file in the QA Distiller.
The program supported only TMX format, therefore, I need to convert the file into tmx format.

however, I don't know the way of conversion, so decided to leave a help message in this site.
Could somebody suggest a solution for me?

I'm suing Trados 2007, SDL Multiterm 2007, and QA distiller during my task.
Thanks in advance for all of your kindness and understanding.

... could be an SDLX TM format as well.
Just go to "Maintain" - "Export" -> TMX.
