Default Help Needed: Updating & Saving Database

I learned how to program by reading the book: "Beginning Visual Basic 2005". The chapter I enjoyed reading the most are 16 and 17. Accessing Database & Database programming.

Main Question:
I would like to ask if it is possible to retrieve the database, update the contents and save it to another file and later can be accessed and retrieved for reference purposes.

For example:

I used the "AnimalCount.MDB" database to display the usual daily count of animals on my database.

I want to update the animal count inside the "AnimalCount.MDB" database but i want to save it to a different dataabase file which my program can access on a later time so I can determine the exact animal count on a particular date.Instead of modifying "AnimalCount.MDB". The new file will be saved as "AC-12012008.MDB"

Thanks you very much. :).
