I am writing an access app for a disconnected view of an oracle database

i can handle importing tables no problem

DoCmd.TransferDatabase acImport, "ODBC", strOdbc, acTable, "SPATIAL.V_LITTERBIN", "SPATIAL_LITTERBIN"

but this 'table' runs off a view so the index BIN_ID needs defining in the local db.
anyone got a bit of code that will define the index once the table is imported
also can you replace tables without having to delete the original. ath the moment it will just import the table and add a number to the end if the object already exists

No.  You can delete all the records from the original (thus leaving the structure intact) and replace them with new records, but otherwise you must DROP the table and recreate it.
