VBA to run query make table query to create new unique table with date stamp

Hi,
I see how I can use VBA to execute a query.
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/MS_Access/Q_28260015.html
and what I need is to be able to execute the query (make table) and at the same time dictate the name of the table as I'd like to change the table each month AND KEEP the previous months table.

I'm doing sort of a modified backup of some tables each month and would rather not have the data appended into a table, the use of the tables is more easily managed if they are separated by month.

Thanks,

Note to self here. After pondering this a bit I think I will look into just using an append table process for the backup. It does make the process of later querying the table a bit more cumbersome for users that want to (in this use case) review history but given the lack of interest here in solving the problem apparently staying out of VB is the easiest way to go.

Would it not make far more sense to have just one table but with an extra field in it called MONTH and you populate this with your month identifier?  This separates them by month and makes your life a lot simpler.

Hi Neilsr, To you and I yes it would. To the end user of the tables that means one more thing they've got to manage in their minds hence the request that they have a table for each month. Basically the end user wants to be able to look at a month (around 5k rows) more like an XLS rather than have to query the table for a given month. I'm slowly working on migrating the users to a more thorough understanding (and use) of MS Access, 1st step is to get them to open the product, even getting there was a challenge. Sorry for long winded reply.
