You can use the ALTER TABLE syntax and pass it through ADO connection object.

Thanks i was looking for a Copy and Paste.

Actually im almost there i just need to get the FieldType in a string instead of a numeric value

ex.  adInteger = 3 so i need integer instead of the number 3

You could also ADOX to check wich field is the first Allow Nulls field ?

I do not think that the 'allow nulls' is shown in the datatype...  In fact I am sure it is not ;-)
