Problem with code for listing field names

I am trying to find the field names in a table in an Access database other than the current database and write these  field names into a  table in the current database.
I am using the following code:

       Dim fld As Field
       Dim db As DAO.Database
       Dim rs2 As DAO.Recordset

       Set db = OpenDatabase(txtdatabasename)    
       Set rs2 = Currentdb.OpenRecordset("TableFieldNames")
       Currentdb.Execute ("DELETE TableFieldNames.* FROM TableFieldNames")

       For Each fld In db.TableDefs(cmbTable).Fields
             rs2.AddNew
             rs2!NamofTable = cmbTable
             rs2!NameOfField = fld.Name
             rs2.Update
       Next fld
       rs2.close
     
Variable txtdatabasename contains the full path for the database that the table is in.
Variable cmbTable contains the name of the table.

I am getting the error message "Run-time error '13':   Type mismatch"  on the following line:
       For Each fld In db.TableDefs(cmbTable).Fields

What am I doing wrong here?

You may need to modify to:

Dim fld As DAO.Field
