Access database has points and areas in the same table

I have an Access database which has points and areas in the same table.

The records that are area have multiple longitude and latitudes (I am guessing each would be a point which would form polygons).

The fields are called StartLong, StartLat, StartLongWGS84, StartLatWGS84, EndLat, EndLong, etc. Am I able to make this into a shapefile? If so, how?

(I would have to split the table into two: points and area before converting to shapefile since a shapefile can only be one type of geometry).

skip the polygon file, it isn't going to happen
