As far as I can tell, no. You can't even create an .mdb file from the MS 
SQL interface when you export data from MS SQL. If the functionality ain't 
there, then I would think that it can't be done without Access available. 
Which is too bad.

What I do is create an empty Access DB, store it on the server and grab a 
copy of it when I need a blank one. Sucks, but it works.
