Scripting databases (100 pts)

I've posted a question on the VB/Databases forum that someone might be able to help with here. 100pts on offer.

Basically I want to write code that will generate a database "on the fly", ie create all the tables, querydefs and relationships to replicate an existing database that I have.
If you can give me an example, or even better know of any tools to help, please see the Q below :

This might help, it goes over all the functions you might ever use for ADO and DAO database access.  The last few pages cover creating tables, queries, making things replicable... etc.

The database that you want to replicate do you want the data that is inside the Tables as well, or do you just want a replicated empty database?

What type of database Access, SQL, dBase, ...?

Sorry I just went to your link and read the question.

But what I have done in the past is changed the Database name ie. MSAccess.mdb to {anyname}.dll and placed it in the System directory.
When I needed to create a new database I simply copied the template over to the destination directory renamed to Whatever.mdb.

jonder... not a bad idea, unfortunately samopal and morpho have both provided solutions that let me do it in code.

Thanks anyway.
