DBF Creation via OLE-DB

This is a link to an article on DB Base file creation via OLE-DB.

The following is the important part:

OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection(@”Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=c:tempdbase;Extended Properties=DBASE IV;”);

OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand(“CREATE TABLE aDBaseFile (col1 Integer,col2 Double)”, conn);


The following is the equivalent in VBA

Sub foo()
‘ Add a reference to c:program filescommon filessystemadomsado15.dll
Dim c As New Connection
c.ConnectionString = “Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=c:tempdbase;Extended Properties=DBASE IV;”
c.Execute (“CREATE TABLE DBF3 (col1 Integer,col2 Double)”)
End Sub
