Updating/Appending Microsoft Access 2010 table data to SharePoint 2007 Lists

I currently have a Main database that generates reports based off of query results. Each month, new data replaces the current tables in the Main database, ultimately changing the report output data. I have SQL code to capture this query output and put the results into a new table in a seperate Prototype database. The SQL statement is:

SELECT * INTO table_CES IN 'C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Prototype.accdb'

From the Prototype database, I will have 16 tables, each linked to a SharePoint list.
The purpose of this second database is to house these 16 linked tables, each table having it's own report data that will be distributed to a leadership team.

My concern is figuring out how to keep these SharePoint lists updated, without breaking the connections or overwriting the existing linked table names. To my knowledge, i've read DELETE and APPEND queries seem to be the approach to take, but does that mean I would have to write 16 DELETE and 16 APPEND queries? And would there be a way to do this programatically via VBA. Thanks

Heres a reference article that I posed the question in:
