The easiest way is to create the database from Microsoft  Access or use the VB data mamanager.
Create database and the table:
On your VB desing enviroment, goto the menu "Add-In/Visual Data manager"
The data manager window will come out. Select the menu "File/New/Microsoft Access/Version7.0" (choose the proper database for youself). Enter the name of your database.
you should get the database interface.
Now right click the mouse and select "New Table"
Enter the name of your table. Then click on "Add Field"
You should be able to enter the information about all field in your table. When done, click on "Build table".

Now you have your table. Select "Utility/Data Form Designer", enter a name for the form, and slect your table as the record source, select all the fields. and click on OK.

You should get the form you want.

The following will allow you to create a database on the fly within VB (for Access):

Public dbWorkspace As Workspace
Public dbDatabase As Database
Public dbTable1Def As TableDef
Public dbTable2Def As TableDef
Public dbFilename As Field
Public dbPageNumber As Field
Public dbPath As Field
Public dbHeader As Field

' Create the Database '
Set dbWorkspace = DBEngine.Workspaces(0)
Set dbDatabase = dbWorkspace.CreateDatabase("Database.mdb", dbLangGeneral)

' Create the Tables '
Set dbTable1Def = dbDatabase.CreateTableDef("Table1Name")
Set dbTable2Def = dbDatabase.CreateTableDef("Table2Name")

' Create the Fields '  
Set dbFilename = dbTable1Def.CreateField("Filename", dbText, 12)
Set dbPageNumber = dbTable1Def.CreateField("PageNumber", dbText, 8)
Set dbHeader = dbTable1Def.CreateField("Header", dbText, 10)

Set dbPath = dbTable2Def.CreateField("Path", dbText, 255)

' Append the Fields to the Appropriate Tables '  
dbTable1Def.Fields.Append dbFilename
dbTable1Def.Fields.Append dbPageNumber
dbTable1Def.Fields.Append dbHeader
dbTable2Def.Fields.Append dbPath

' Append the Tables to the Database '  
dbDatabase.TableDefs.Append dbTable1Def
dbDatabase.TableDefs.Append dbTable2Def
dbDatabase.Close
