Refresh Access Database through Excel VBA

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?

Yes. DBEngine(0)(0).TableDefs.Refresh or Currentdb.TableDefs.Refresh

Thanks Gustav.

I added that line of code, but it still is not able to read the new table unless I go into the database and refresh myself (pressing F5).

Then you may have to reopen the connection to the database.
