Refresh Access Database through Excel VBA

Last Modified: 2016-02-10
I am using Excel VBA and have a statement that runs a MakeTable query.  This is run successfully, however when I try to use that new table inside the code after it is created, it shows the following error:

The Microsoft Access database engine cannot find the input table or query, 'myNewTable'.  Make sure it exists and that its name is spelled correctly.

Is there a way to refresh the database (F5 equivalent) in Excel VBA?
