Comapre Query Results From Two Access Databases

So I have two Access databases with identical information except for a calculating field that uses different dates.  One is calculating results based on 12/15/2014, and the other is calculating results from the same data based on 01/15/2015.  The calcuated results of the two dates are used to perform a value calculation in the databases.

The question I have is how can I best compare the results of the two database calculations for each record in the databases.  These records are identical in field structure and data with the exception of the calculated fields.  So it would be easy to match the individual records on key fields, but I am not sure the best way to do this when the query results reside in separate databases.

There are two databases because of the size of the data.  I thought about creating a third database where I could send the two query results where I could compare them, but it appears I would first need to download the query results to a text file and re-import the data to the third database.

Thoughts on how best to accomplish this task?  Thanks.  - Reilly
