The following code demonstrates how to create a new table.

' BeginCreateTableVB  
Sub Main()  
    On Error GoTo CreateTableError  

    Dim tbl As New Table  
    Dim cat As New ADOX.Catalog  

    ' Open the Catalog.  
    cat.ActiveConnection = "Provider='Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0';" & _  
        "Data Source='Northwind.mdb';"  

    tbl.Name = "MyTable"  
    tbl.Columns.Append "Column1", adInteger  
    tbl.Columns.Append "Column2", adInteger  
    tbl.Columns.Append "Column3", adVarWChar, 50  
    cat.Tables.Append tbl  
    Debug.Print "Table 'MyTable' is added."  

    'Delete the table as this is a demonstration.  
    cat.Tables.Delete tbl.Name  
    Debug.Print "Table 'MyTable' is deleted."  

    'Clean up  
    Set cat.ActiveConnection = Nothing  
    Set cat = Nothing  
    Set tbl = Nothing  
    Exit Sub  

CreateTableError:  

    Set cat = Nothing  
    Set tbl = Nothing  

    If Err <> 0 Then  
        MsgBox Err.Source & "-->" & Err.Description, , "Error"  
    End If
