        DS      : String;
begin
    BaseName := 'C:\DATA.mdb';
    Catalog := CreateComObject(StringToGUID('ADOX.Catalog'))as _Catalog;
    DS := 'Provider=Microsoft.jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source='+BaseName;
    Catalog.Create(DS);
    Table := CreateComObject(StringToGUID('ADOX.Table'))as _Table;
    Table.Name := 'FILO';
    Catalog.Tables.Append(Table);
    Table.Columns.Append('CardID',adVarWChar,12);
    Table.Columns.Append('Name',adVarWChar,20);

Most access table seem to accept null values...

if you are haveing problems with sending null values to an access table then try setting the emptystringtonull property to enAlways.

if it was just setting it then I thought that was the default in access *shrugs*

if I am totally out of it and barking way up the wrong tree then sorry :)
