Create DB and ODBC

How can i create a new database with the access format (*.mdb)?

In my case i can't use the DAO classes because i must connect the database with an odbc driver.

Is there any other method than copying a empty *.mdb file?

Thanks for help

You must start with a MDB file that has been created using Access. There is no other (easy) way to initialise the Access system tables correctly.

Having created the MDB file, you could create tables using DDL SQL statements. Or do it in Access.
1.  Start Microsfot Access.  
2.  Click the "New Database" command on the "File" menu.  
3.  Save it using any name you like.

You cannot create a database file (.mdb file) using ODBC only. You can use DAO to create the file and then use ODBC to access it.
