There are a couple of ways to do this...

The simplest (From VB) is to create a reference to Access using Project References.  

Something like this:

Dim x As Access.Application
   
Set x = GetObject(, "Access.Application")
   
x.DoCmd.CopyObject "DestinationDBFullPath", "NameInDestination", acReport, "SOURCEREPORT"
   
Set x = Nothing
