  • You could use SQL to do this. It wasn't clear to me whether you need to create an index for the table or whether the table already exists in Access. Below is a code example that creates the table in Access on the fly and imports the data:


    Code Block

    Dim AccessConn As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _

    "Data Source=C:\Test Files\db1.mdb")




    Dim AccessCommand As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand("SELECT * INTO Orders FROM [Orders] IN '' [ODBC;Driver={SQL Server};Server=(local);Database=Northwind;Trusted_Connection=yes];", AccessConn)
