Hello,

Your Question is simple you can execute DDL comands from VB.

For exemple:

IF you have a connection to an INFORMIX USER you can create a VB program to create a database with the SQL ANSI instruction
"CREATE DATABASE <database_name>;"

after that you can create so many tables you wish:
With CREATE TABLE instruction.

Bye,

Johnho..

Get yourself a copy of DBMapper.  It maps an existing Access Database into Visual Basic code (BAS Module). There you can go through it at your own pace and se exactly how it is done.  DBMapper also creates the queries stored in Acess Databases.

I think it is shareware and you should be able to find it by searching the web. If you can't email me back at tommy_boy@rocketmail.com and I'll send you a copy.

dim wrkdefault as workspace

 Set dbsNew = wrkDefault.CreateDatabase("c:\order entry\NewDB.mdb", _
        dbLangGeneral)
       dbsNew.Execute "CREATE TABLE Daily " _
        & "(Operator TEXT, regular INTEGER,gift INTEGER,shipping CURRENCY);"
