use the ms access object library (under project/references)
(note: access will have to be installed on the client machine)

to create a new access database:

Dim accApp As New Access.Application
accApp.DBEngine.CreateDatabase "C:\my documents\newDB.mdb", <locale info as string>
accApp.Quit

Dim myCN As New ADODB.Connection
Dim strSQL As String

myCN.open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
          "Data Source=C:\my documents\newDB.mdb;"

strSQL = "Create table tblNew ( field1 text )"
myCN.execute strSQL
myCN.Close

code not tested
