use a dataadapter... link it to the particular MDB table

then use Dataadapter.fillschema(DataTablebName)

This will create a table with the same schema as found in the MDB

To write this schema to a file which you can then view in IE use the Dataset.WriteXMLSchema to just get the Schema or Dataset.WriteXML(Filestream, XMLWriteMode.WriteSchema) to get the Data and the Schema.
