    Microsoft Access 2007 files are in a new format, called .accdb (the old one was .mdb).
    However, a laccdb file is not really a database file at all - it is a file locking file that is created when a 2007 database is open (the old format was .ldb). Essentially all it does is lock the file (preventing multiple users from destroying each other's data). If you could read it, it would just have the user names and permissions allowed.
    What you need is a new file from your mum!!!
    And ask her to save it as a 2003 Access file format - that is, as an .mdb file.
    Then get OpenOffice (it's free at www.openoffice.org) - it will open the Access .mdb file.
