VB6 code to create a db and Table

I need help with this vb6 code. It worked at one time and created a database m086.mdb
However, now it gives me an ISAM error before the create. I can't figure out why.

Also, when it DID create the m086.mdb it would not continue and create a table in the new db. How do I then get the table into the m086.mdb?

Private Sub CreateClass_Click()
'CreateDatabase()
On Error GoTo ErrorCreateDB
Dim Cat As New ADOX.Catalog
Dim Tbl(5) As ADOX.Table
Dim Idx() As ADOX.Index
Dim msgErrR As Integer
Dim sCnn As String
NuevaDB$ = "m086"

sCnn = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Jet OLEDB:reEngine Type=5;" + "Data Source=" + NuevaDB$ + ".mdb"

'error next statement:"can not find installable
'ISAM.
' At one time I did NOT get this error now I do !

Cat.Create sCnn
'what code do I need HERE to create a table with specs below?

Stop
Set Tbl(5) = New ADOX.Table
Stop
Set Tbl(5).ParentCatalog = Cat
Stop
With Tbl(5)

.Name = "ClassList"

.Columns.Append "Password", adVarWChar, 5

.Columns.Append "StudenNumber", adInteger

.Columns("StudenNumber").Properties("AutoIncrement").Value = True

.Columns("StudenNumber").Properties("Nullable").Value = False

.Columns.Append "StudentFirst", adVarWChar, 25

.Columns("StudentFirst").Properties("Nullable").Value = False

.Columns.Append "StudentLast", adVarWChar, 25

.Columns("StudentLast").Properties("Nullable").Value = False

.Columns.Append "TeacherFirst", adVarWChar, 25

.Columns("TeacherFirst").Properties("Nullable").Value = False

.Columns.Append "TeacherLast", adVarWChar, 25

.Columns("TeacherLast").Properties("Nullable").Value = False
End With

Stop
ReDim Idx(1)
Set Idx(0) = New ADOX.Index

Idx(0).Name = "ClassID"

Idx(0).IndexNulls = adIndexNullsAllow

Idx(0).Unique = True

Idx(0).Columns.Append "Password"
Set Idx(1) = New ADOX.Index

Idx(1).Name = "PrimaryKey"

Idx(1).PrimaryKey = True

Idx(1).Unique = True

Idx(1).Columns.Append "StudenNumber"
For i = 0 To UBound(Idx)

Tbl(5).Indexes.Append Idx(i)
Next i
Stop
Cat.Tables.Append Tbl(5)
Stop
Set Cat = Nothing
Exit Sub

ErrorCreateDB:

msgErrR = MsgBox(" Error No. " & Err & " " & vbCrLf & Error, vbCritical + vbAbortRetryIgnore, "Code Gen Error")

Select Case msgErrR

Case Is = vbAbort

If Not (Cat Is Nothing) Then

Set Cat = Nothing

End If

Exit Sub

Case Is = vbRetry

Resume Next

Case Is = vbIgnore

Resume

End Select
End Sub

Why dont you use pure SQL statement to create the table and append fields?

100 points refunded, but question will not be deleted, has value.  Moved to PAQ at zero points instead.  You cannot delete a question once comments have been added, without Moderator assistance.
