I`m doing a project in VB to conduct a Quiz competition.
I`ve succeeded in creating databases & tables using ADOX.
The problem is how can I retrieve all table names from a database using ADOX?


with regards
Robins Antony.

adox or adodb, if adodx sorry never tried...

Never heard of ADODX.. how do you use it? and What are their diferrence?

hi frnd,
ADOX means Active Data Object extension.To create a databse using ADOX,
Required references : Microsoft Activex Data Objects 2.1 Library and Microsoft ADOExt 2.1 for DDL and Security.
then try these code...

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim tbl As New Table, cat As New ADOX.Catalog

' 1) Create the DataBase
cat.Create "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & App.Path & "\Clients.mdb" & ";"
' 2) Create Table name "ClientsInfo"
tbl.Name = "ClientsInfo"
' 3) Add 3 Fields
tbl.Columns.Append "Name", adVarWChar, 50 'Text
tbl.Columns.Append "Age", adInteger 'Number
tbl.Columns.Append "Address", adLongVarWChar 'Memo
' 4) Save the Table to the DataBase
cat.Tables.Append tbl

'*********************** Use this to Open and/or Modify an existing DataBase **************
'Open the DataBase
'cat.ActiveConnection = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & "Data Source=" & App.Path & "\Clients.mdb" & ";"
'*********************************************************************************
MsgBox "Clients.mdb Created."
End Sub
