Creating a table

I have an open query that works and I want to place the data from the query into a table. I know I can use the Insert Into with an existing table, however can a table be created to store the data. In other words have a table created as you pull the data with the Open Query?

Select   *
from open query  (linked_Server,
'select Distinct * from tableXXX
 ')

So the data from tableXXX from the linked Server would go into a table that does not yet exist.
It would be analogous to using the Import Wizard, where you can import data from an excel worksheet and the wizard will create a table in a SQL Server database if it is not yet built. It is a Create Table on the fly...

Just use the INTO clause:

SELECT  *
INTO    newTable
FROM    OPENQUERY(linked_Server, 'SELECT DISTINCT * FROM tableXXX;');

if it's a linked table you could also use :
DoCmd.CopyObject , "desttablename", acTable, "sourcetablename"
