What are you trying to achieve with the data definition language stuff? If you want to move your data or tables or structures from SQL Server to Access, just create a blank Access db and import or link via ODBC.

What created the ddl file? I assumed SQL Server for no reason that currently makes sense.

i know SQL is more favorable, actually, i just want to use a access file which is more easy to create in a application.

The concept of using the ddl file to create Access tables is fine, but the SQL or code in the ddl must be understood by Access, which is why I asked where it came from. Can't really offer useful advice without seeing some data from your file, or creating my own using the same app. I have SQL Server, MySql, Informix etc.
