sqlstr = "create table @tablename (...) "
sqlcmd.commandtext=sqlstr


first you shoud pass it as string variable  
vtable_name = "real_table_name"
sqlstr = "create table " &  vtable_name
sqlstr = sqlstr  & "(" .............


when u use it



this example


Public Function F_MAX(ByVal T_name As String, ByVal F_name As String) As Double
    On Error Resume Next
   
    Dim rs_max As Recordset
    Dim sql As String


    Set rs_max = New Recordset
    sql = "select max(" & F_name & ") as s  from " & T_name
    rs_max.Open sql, db, adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic
    If Not (IsNull(rs_max!s)) Then
        F_MAX = rs_max!s + 1
    Else
        F_MAX = 1
    End If


End Function

table and column names CANNOT be passed as parameters, only values can.
so, you have to build the sql statement "manually":
sqlstr = "create table " & textbox.text & " (...) "
sqlcmd.commandtext=sqlstr

@rogersam:
because.
actually, I don't know a single database where this were possible, so it must not be terribly easy to implement such a feature, otherwise it would already be...

well i did try it, i think i dont understand what you are trying to say.

I could create a table by importing the column names and datatypes as parameters from a text file, or directly from text boxes.
