    you may have to go through JET

    IE import your dbf data into access
    then export your data to the required format

    what error message(s) are you getting when you import into Access?
    which version of dbf file did you try to select?

    the last time I had to import data from dbf files it went through pretty easily into access.

    have you tried a native export from what ever environemnt is running DBF files?

    Regarding xml...MSAccess version 2003 has a conversion for xml files and does a nice job importing/exporting xml files. MSAccess 2000 doesn't but you may be able to find some 3rd party converters. I've also rarely had any problems importing *.dbf files into MSAccess.
