I need to CREATE from scratch an MS Access database with tables and fields all from scratch using ADO... Where do I start?


Using DAO I knew how to do it but can't seem to figure it out in ADO.


Why? Why? Why? everyone asks why would I do this... The program will collect data but I don't want to send out a database in the install and some tables won't be needed for some users. This way only what is needed by the user will be created at the time they need it.

Is there no way to do it with standard ADO 2.5?

No you need ADOX.

You can create new tables using the "CREATE TABLE" syntax using the Execute method of your ADO connection object but the database itself must be created using ADOX.
