Hi.
I have a database (accounting database).   MS-Access as Front End and Mysql as Back-end.

In accounting, it is a routine to close periods (fiscal year, for instance).    In doing this, normally a new database is set up with the Ending balances (now beginning balances) for the new fiscal year.

The implications of this is that:
1. A new database is set (In mysql, in my case).
2. A new ODBC Connection needs to be set.

How can I automate this using MS-ACCESS and Mysql?  To make it userfriendly and easy to use.    How Can I open a new database in Mysql from Ms-Access?  Possible?

If you have accounting knowledge or knowledge of accounting software you will know what I am talking about.  
If not, I will explain more.

Please advice.

Thank you.
