All I need is a couple of examples to go by. CAn you help me? I've never done it, I used to do all this is Dbase4... i thank you in advance for any help you can provide me with

Looking at your chain of events, "a few hints" probably won't get you to the end result.

But...using Access as the main brain:
You can Link multiple external data sources (MySQL and Excel), and Access sees them as mostly internal tables.
Queries can be created to read those, filter for only the data needed, and output as required.
