ADO or DAO?

For ADO:

Dim myConn As ADODB.Connection
Set myConn = New ADODB.Connection
myConn.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=c:\myfolder\mydatabase.mdb;Persist Security Info=False;"
myConn.Open

Simplest way is this with the above code:

Dim rstTables As ADODB.Recordset
Set rstTables = New ADODB.Recordset
rstTables = myConn.OpenSchema(adSchemaTables)

Then you can use the recordset and the various fields returned such as "CATALOG_NAME", "TABLE_NAME" etc to get the required information.
