If you have Microsoft Access and it tells you the file is corrupted then nothing will probably open it. I am not sure Libre Office can open it as MDB is a proprietary format. You could try converting it to a txt, CSV, or XML file and then import the CSV or XML file into a spreadsheet.

"Corrupted" means "damaged"...that being the case, you cannot expect the file to function as it should.

 

You can try running the chkdsk /r command on the partition containing the file...it will attempt to make the file readable/functional, but there is no guarantee of desired results.

Before attempting to revover data from a damaged .mdb file, consider that you may still have the option of recoving a previous version of the file intact. From Windows Explorer, right click on the file and choose the option 'Restore previous versions', which hopefully will list at least one version to restore form.
