Why do you need to? There is absolutely no point in storing this value in the database because it will be incorrect 99% of the time. Store only the birthdate, then when you need to display the age on a view or printed report, calculate it at the time of display from today's date and the DOB from the database.

As Richard MacCutchan has mentioned, you need to use query to calculate age. You don't need to store its value in a database.
SELECT [BirthDate], Date() AS [Today], DateDiff("yyyy", [BirthDate], Date())  AS [Age]
MS Access: Date() function[^]
MS Access: DateDiff function[^]
