Using Microsoft Activex Data Objects and MyODBC 3.51 (from www.mysql.com) the code looks like this:

'code begins here
dim  cnn as adodb.connection
set cnn = new adodb.connection

cnn.open "server=yourserver;db=yorudb;driver=MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver;uid=root;pwd=xxx"

cnn.execute "CREATE DATABASE YOURNEWDB"

cnn.close

set cnn = nothing
'code ends here
