Ms Access update field automatically

I need to add numbers automatically into a certain field in a table for every record whenever it reaches month-end. This action has to be automatic, means, no action button should be clicked by admin for this. How is this possible with Access ?

Is this a JDBC question?
In SQL Server you can set up a stored procedure that executes every so often. I don't have a clue about Access; it's probably much more limited.
Alternatively, you can use the WinNT/2K/XP scheduler to run an Access or Java application every month.
