Will arcpy.MakeFeatureLayer_management work with a personal geodatabase?

I'm working in 10.2.2 and running this stand alone in Idle.

The script is very simple:


import arcpy

arcpy.MakeFeatureLayer_management('D:/SWB/SWB_grid_builder_eq_area2.mdb/precip_sites_yr', 'test')


The feature class is just fine and works in ArcMap. I even created a new mdb and new FC to make sure that it is the right version.

It works ok with gdb feature classes, but when I point it at an mdb as above it gives me:


ERROR 000732: Input Features: Dataset D:/SWB/SWB_grid_builder_eq_area2.mdb/precip_sites_yr does not exist or is not supportedFailed to execute (MakeFeatureLayer).


Anybody know what is going on?
