List TableNames from MS Access DB

Once I'm connected, what's the SQL statement (or....???) to list into a recordset/array the names of all the tables in the database?  I need the list from a MS Access file (*.mdb) -I'm doing this in VB6
Thx in advance.

thanks for your help guys  -
I followed aelatik's link and saw the crap everyone posted: here's the simplified version for the next guy who comes around:


    objConn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=c:\file.mdb"

        Set RS = objConn.OpenSchema(adSchemaTables)

        Do Until RS.EOF
              strTableName = RS("TABLE_NAME")
                   Combo1.AddItem strTableName
            RS.MoveNext
        Loop


I'm awarding the points to aelatik 'cause he was first; but thanks for all your help
