This code adds field c3 to table t1.

Private Sub Command19_Click()
    Dim dbs As Database
    Set dbs = CurrentDb
   
    dbs.Execute "ALTER TABLE t1 " _
        & "ADD COLUMN c3 CHAR(20);"
End Sub

If table is in a different database, use:
Set dbs = OpenDatabase("NameOfDatabase.mdb")

When you finish the code,
dbs.Close

Finally, I am using the SQL statement to add the new column in tables.

ALTER TABLE rawdata ADD test int

But anyway, thanks again.
