I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Same as earlier versions, in Table view right-click on the table in the right-hand column and choose delete.

It's in use in your database at the moment.

You can open Access without "Movies to Keep" being open by double-clicking on your database file while holding down the shift key.

You might want to try Rename first though just in case deleting it breaks something in your database. Then relaunch - if Access doesn't complain about you renaming the table then you can probably delete it with no issues.  

Deleting in Access isn't quite like deleting a file in Windows - once it's deleted that's it.  The only way back is to have made a backup of your database first!
