Are you moving this in from another database? If so, then use the TransferDatabase method instead:

DoCmd.TransferDatabase acImport, ,"C:\MyFolder\MyDatabase.mdb", acTable,  "SourceTableName", "Destination TableName"

TransferDatabase method:

I thank you kindly for your time.

I am Exporting the table to another database.
I am getting a runtime error 2507.
The type isn’t installed database type or doesn’t support the operation you chose.

Also I need to include the date and time as part of the Destination TableName.

I have included more of the code.  

Thank you again.
Option Explicit
Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)
Me.TimerInterval = 60000
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Timer()
DoCmd.RunMacro "macro1"

Dim ILSPBackup As String
Dim sNow As Variant
sNow = Format(Date, " yyyymmdd") & "_" & Format(Time, "hhnn")

Dim strDestinationMDB As String
Dim dbsData As DAO.Database
strDestinationMDB = XXXXXXXX\XXXXXXX\XXXXXX\MyDatabase.mdb"
Set dbsData = DBEngine.OpenDatabase(strDestinationMDB, _
False, False, ";pwd=XXXXXXX")
DoCmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.TransferDatabase acExport, ,"C:\MyFolder\MyDatabase.mdb", acTable,  "SourceTableName", "Destination TableName"
End Sub
