Columns and Tables Append Methods, Name Property Example (VB)


The following code demonstrates how to create a new table.

' BeginCreateTableVB
Sub Main()
    On Error GoTo CreateTableError

    Dim tbl As New Table
    Dim cat As New ADOX.Catalog

    ' Open the Catalog.
    cat.ActiveConnection = "Provider='Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0';" & _
        "Data Source='Northwind.mdb';"

    tbl.Name = "MyTable"
    tbl.Columns.Append "Column1", adInteger
    tbl.Columns.Append "Column2", adInteger
    tbl.Columns.Append "Column3", adVarWChar, 50
    cat.Tables.Append tbl
    Debug.Print "Table 'MyTable' is added."

    'Delete the table as this is a demonstration.
    cat.Tables.Delete tbl.Name
    Debug.Print "Table 'MyTable' is deleted."

    'Clean up
    Set cat.ActiveConnection = Nothing
    Set cat = Nothing
    Set tbl = Nothing
    Exit Sub


    Set cat = Nothing
    Set tbl = Nothing

    If Err <> 0 Then
        MsgBox Err.Source & "-->" & Err.Description, , "Error"
    End If
End Sub
' EndCreateTableVB
