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)
