I've tried this on access 2000:

Private sub cmdNewControl_Click()
   Dim ctlnewbutton as Control
   Dim frmnewform as Form
   
   Set frmnewform = CreateForm()
   frmnewform.Visible = False
   Set ctlnewbutton = CreateControl(frmnewform.name, acTextBox, acDetail)

   With ctlnewbutton
       .Width = 1000
       .Height = 200
       .Left = 200
       .Top = 200
       .Name = "txtNewControl"
   End With

   DoCmd.Close acForm, frmnewform.Name, acSaveYes
End Sub

There's a catch, Access doesn't allow creation of new controls on an open form
when that particular form is not open in design view.
That's why in the code above, the control was created on another new form.
You can then attach this new form as a subform on your target form
