How do I refresh linked tables automatically on a time basis or with a command button programed to do so?

Good Morning,
My dilemma.  I've created a separate database (Special Program Database) which has 12 tables linked to another database (District Database).

My specific question is this:  How can I refresh the linked tables in the Special Program Database on a daily basis without doing it manually?  Can I use a command button programmed to run a macro? Not my first choice.  Or, can I program a script/code to run at a specific time during the night to refresh the tables?

I'd rather program a code so that users don't press the command button to try to refresh while others are updating/entering data.

Thanks in advance.
