The query Rey posted is a make-table query.  He's just running it from VBA.  Is that what you were looking for?  If not, you need to use DAO or ADO or the methods of the TableDefs collection.

Why do you not want a make-table query?

Apparently you did want a make-table query despite what your request said.
