Sub DeleteTable()

'Three constants you need to change to make it work!
Const remoteDatabase As String = "C:\MyDB.accdb"
Const PW             As String = "TEST"
Const Tablename      As String = "MyTableName"

Dim ws As DAO.Workspace
Dim db As DAO.Database
   
    Set ws = DBEngine.Workspaces(0)
   
        Set db = ws.OpenDatabase(remoteDatabase, False, False, "MS Access;PWD=" & PW)
   
            'Delete the table
            db.Execute "DROP TABLE [" & Tablename & "]", dbFailOnError
       
        Set db = Nothing
    Set ws = Nothing
End Sub
