I have a VC++ program in which I am using ADO and ADOX to open and create as need an Access .MDB file.  For the most part things are working fine.  However, I do have a problem that I will try to describe in general terms and see if I can get a solution.  If needed I can provided code snippets, etc.

The program works as follows as it starts and attempts to open the database:  

1.  If the database exists, everything opens and the program works fine from start to finish
2.  If the database does not exist, a create routine is called that creates the database, 3 tables, and a variety of indexes per table.
2a.  If I immediately stop the program at this point and restart it, the program works fine from start to finish.
2b.  If I continue to use the program and attempt something that accesses one of my Indexes, I get an ADO Exception that the Index does not exist in the database/table.  If I stop the program and use Access to open the database and the design tool, everything looks fine -- the tables and indexes are all there.  I can restart the program, attempt the same procedure as before to access the Index and all works well.

Any ideas why this would be happenning -- when the Index would not be seen after getting Appended to the table?  I'm using MDAC 2.6 and I've checked to make sure that I am appending and releasing everything in the create routine before calling the open routine to finish the process.

Hey! markparr,

  It sounds like VC++ is over-running Access's ability to get the system tables adjusted before launching into usage of those objects.

  Try "reigning in" the program for a few milliseconds to allow the ADO engine to finalize the system table updates before proceeding to use the new objects.  

regards
Jack
