I've never used this dll, but you can use ADODB to create tables:

I assume you've got MyODBC set up and a DSN, if so, then the code you require in VB is somthing like this:

  Set conntemp = CreateObject("adodb.connection")  
  conntemp.Open "DSN=[YOUR DSN NAME HERE]" ' connect

  mySQL = "Create table [table name here]"
  conntemp.Execute mySQL   ' execute the code

  set conntemp = Nothing

See http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/CREATE_TABLE.html for more advanced create syntax (such as adding fields etc)

The whole reasion for the dll is not to have anything to do with myODBC or ODBC and dsn's.

Dim mysql_options As Long
Set mysql = New cMysql
