Writing to second database

I have an application using Dao with an Access database. I want to allow the user to "archive" old records to a separate database and view them from the "archive" file later.
The archive file needs to be user-nameable for creation when sending the current records to the archive.
I have an empty database file (named "archive.mdb") which I can copy to a new file based on the user's input. That part is working fine. The problem comes in creating CDaoRecordset- derived objects connected to that new database file.
Not looking for code here, just the framework of the approach -- how to create and connect recordsets to a user-nameable database file, etc.

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but to connect to a named MDB file, create a CDaoDatabase object & call the Open() method.

e.g.
CDaoDatabase dbArchive;

dbArchive.Open("C:\\TEMP\\ARCHIVE.MDB");

CDaoRecordset rsArchive(&dbArchive);

I think you want to use a different
database.You may declare a new database
object of type CDatabase or CDaoDatabase
Open your  database using your new Accees file.
 Open record set using the second database object and write your data into the table using the recordset opened using the second database.
