I am using the following Access VBA to delete a table in another database. I want to use similar code to check if a table exists in another database. How would I do this?

    Dim db As dao.Database
    Dim tbd As dao.TableDef
    Dim strDestination As String
    Dim strSQL As String
    strDestination = CurrentProject.Path & "\" & strD

Set db = DBEngine.OpenDatabase(strDestination)
        db.Execute "Drop Table [" & strT & "]"
