If the information contains, point number, northing, easting, elevation, description, you may be in luck.

Export the Access file as a spread sheet file.
Manipulate the data columns as necessary.
Save the file as a comma delimited file with a .TXT extension.
Open a new MSCAD drawing and import the points into the new drawing.
