migrating from Access

I am not a professional programmer, and have never taken a course,
although I have a bookshelf full of books that I've started, so my
programming knowledge is spotty, twenty years of messing about, so
spikes of knowledge here and there, but not a lot of foundation.
Anyway, I have made a fairly large application for a client in Access
and VBA that manages the reservation, administration and accounting for
their banquet hall business. I have made sure that I continue to own
the IP for this application.
Now I would like to port it over to something free and cross platform.
I would like to recreate the app and GPL it. Python + MySQL looks good
because I can read and understand the code examples in the book -- Perl
gives me a headache. BoaConstructor looks good. Any thoughts on this
would be appreciated.
In access I can assign the data source for a form (er, frame I guess in
python) as an SQL statement, and then all the objects in the form read
from the same record. How would I go about achieving this in Python?
Thanks for your help.
