Import all tables from one access database to an other access database

Hi,
I use a function to import table from one access database to an other one.
ex: import("tbl_Contact")
To import all tables from the source database, I have to submit the import function for each table.
As an example, if I have 10 tables in my access database, I would have to use 10 times the function import.
Is it possible to import all tables in only one VBA/SQL instruction?

Thanks

Function import(tableName As String)
       
    Dim strSQLDelete As String
    Dim strSQLImport As String
    Dim directoryName As String
    directoryName = "S:\ABCentre\ABDataC.mdb"
    strSQLDelete = "DELETE *  FROM [" & tableName & "];"
    strSQLImport = "INSERT INTO " & tableName & " 
                              SELECT * From [" & directoryName & "].[" & tableName & "]"
   
    With DoCmd
        .SetWarnings False
            .RunSQL strSQLDelete
            .RunSQL strSQLImport
        .SetWarnings True
    End With
End Function

you can place the tableNames in an Array or in a table

sub import()

dim tblArray(), j as integer, tableName as string

    Dim strSQLDelete As String
    Dim strSQLImport As String
    Dim directoryName As String
    directoryName = "S:\ABCentre\ABDataC.mdb"

    tblArray=Array("tbl_Contact","table1","table2", "table10")
for j=0 to ubound(tblArray)
    tableName=tblArray(j)
    strSQLDelete = "DELETE *  FROM [" & tableName & "];"
    strSQLImport = "INSERT INTO " & tableName & "
                              SELECT * From [" & directoryName & "].[" & tableName & "]"
   
    With DoCmd
        .SetWarnings False
            .RunSQL strSQLDelete
            .RunSQL strSQLImport
        .SetWarnings True
    End With
next

end sub
