Hi Paul, sorry for late reply,

> How to include this program into setup?

I think it's possible add it bcos as many setup file allow the program itself run just after setup completed. Maybe you can try Install Shield or any other setup programs. I'm really lack experiences in this area. Sorry.

> What about program for creating tables in databse?

You can use many method to do that, include DAO, ADO technology. I don't got the source codes, but you can get it easily through internet. Here are some usefel vb website:
