I need the vb command to export a table from one database to another database.

Please note that I am not trying to accomplish andthing like:
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputTable, tableFoo, acFormatRTF, "C:\FooFolder\FooFile.rtf"
(Export to an RTF file)
or:
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputTable, tableFoo, acFormatXLS, "C:\FooFolder\FooFile.xls"
(Export to an Excel file)
or:
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputTable, tableFoo, acFormatTXT, "C:\FooFolder\FooFile.txt"
(Export to a text file)

I need to have a button on a form in foo.mdb that, when clicked, will copy it's own tableFoo from itself into another access database located at C:\FooFolder\bar.mdb

1) I don't actually want to get this out of Access format into something else, just copy it from one Access database to another one.
2) I've Googled this an fonund a lot of "the acFormatRTF" export is broken or "the acFormatXLS" export truncates blah... blah... blah..." so I'm not interested in taking the data out of Access format at all since I'm worried that will break the data. (Especially since there are some long memo fields.)
