Is there a way (I KNOW there must be!) to use an SQL statement from VB, to copy (Duplicate) a table and its data and data type settings?

I have tried to duplicate the table in code but I am unable to set the properties of each field, so duplicating it like this would be best.

Thanks

Hey Kaz! How are you? Long time (Bla bla)

Try this:

Dim MyConn As ADODB.Connection
Dim MyTable As ADODB.Recordset
Set MyConn = New ADODB.Connection
MyConn.ConnectionString = "PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" + App.Path + "\<DB NAME>" + ";"
MyConn.Open
Set MyTable = New ADODB.Recordset
MyTable.Open "SELECT <TABLE NAME>.*,* INTO <NEW TABLENAME> FROM <TABLE NAME>", MyConn, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic
If MyTable.State = adStateOpen Then MyTable.Close

If this works mail me. I just moved and I need to give you the address.

idorey is correct though it is a slight waste of resources using a recordset object to do this. You can do the same thing using the execute method of the connection object:

Using the code supplied above:

Dim MyConn As ADODB.Connection
Set MyConn = New ADODB.Connection
MyConn.ConnectionString = "PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" + App.Path + "\<DB NAME>"
+ ";"
MyConn.Open
MyConn.Execute "SELECT <TABLE NAME>.*,* INTO <NEW TABLENAME> FROM <TABLE NAME>"
MyConn.Close
Set MyConn = Nothing
