I'm running a module in access to delete a table each day but I have more than one table that needs to be deleted
the code is;

Public Function DeleteTable()
Dim tdf As TableDef
For Each tdf In CurrentDb.TableDefs
  If tdf.Name = "B0101" Then
    DoCmd.DeleteObject acTable, tdf.Name
    CurrentDb.TableDefs.Refresh
  End If
Next tdf
End Function

but I need to delete "B0101", "B0102", "B0103" etc....
can someone show me how to add the other tables into the code?

Hi smidgen,

Depends what 'etc' means.

If you just want to delete all tables beginning with B then :

if left(tdf.name,1) = "B" then
