Hi kapot,
I posted two answers about your question:
 - 14 minutes after you posted this question I offered a link to a working example;
 -   3 minutes later I posted a piece of code from working example (from the link).

Today 15 days later I would like to know:
  - Have you any problems, can I help you ? I could to change the example if you need it ....

Best regards,
Emil.

I am very surprised !
Here is not only example of how to create a Database, but how to create a Table inside it !
But you grade my solution with B ???? (Almost two months later ....)
That's a big joke, isn't it ?
