Default Updating database & saving it to another file

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 database 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", which can be opened and displayed by my program for future reference.

Thanks you very much. :).

Hi there.. Isn't easy to just save it to a new table??

If you copy the database everyday, you are populating the HD with data, that will be hard to retrieve after, and all the idea of the database is to store data ;)
