VB to Foxpro

I'm using VB to link a Foxpro database table to an Access table so I can copy the fields I need for the Access table from the Foxpro table. My problem is if the program is shut down in the middle of processing this information and then they try to run it again, an error comes up because the program is trying to link a table that already exists. How can I check to see if the linked table exists so I can delete it if it does? Also, is there some property to check to see if a command button was clicked in the middle of a procedure?
Thank you very much for your time,

Hello Swordmaster,

the easiest way is to leave code as is but add some lines of code

1. At the begin of the sub add
On error goto Trapper

2. Before link creation insert line with number 10 (for example :)

3. at the end of sub (before End Sub) type:

Exit Sub

Trapper:

If Erl = 10 then
  'your code to remove link
  Resume 10
else
  msgbox "Another error."
end if

There are more accurate ways - this is just easiest workaround :))

Sincerely yours,

Crin
