Could someone help me out?

Function Create_Database()
 
Dim dbnewDB As Database
Dim tdnewtable As tabledef
Dim fld As field
Dim idx As Index
 
 
Set dbnewDB = createdatabase("c:\structure\Dennis.mdb", dblanggeneral)
Set tdnewtable = New tabledef
Set fld = tdnewtable.createfield("Title", dbtext, 20)
tdnewtable.fields.append fld
Set fld = tdnewtable.createfield("Open", dbMemo, 20)
tdnewtable.fields.append fld
Set fld = tdnewtable.createfield("High", dbMemo, 20)
tdnewtable.fields.append fld
Set fld = tdnewtable.createfield("Low", dbMemo, 20)
tdnewtable.fields.append fld
Set fld = tdnewtable.createfield("Close", dbMemo, 20)
tdnewtable.fields.append fld
Set fld = tdnewtable.createfield("Signal_1", dbMemo, 20)
tdnewtable.fields.append fld
Set fld = tdnewtable.createfield("Equity_1", dbMemo, 20)
