We are trying to move some projects from Geomedia Professional to QGIS. Since we have large style libraries (stored as mdb) we are looking for a way to convert the styles to a format that QGIS can read. There is no export functionality in geomedia. Export in Access from mdb to xml failed when importing in stylemanager in QGIS. Can anyone help?

(Windows 7; Geomedia Professional 13; QGIS 1.8.0)
