I have to create an accdb that per vba and append 4 tables in one mde (access 2000).

I know how to attach in own database, but is it possible to append tables via vba in another file?

That is, from one file attach in another?

thanks all

You can link to as many back-end files as you'd like.

You can also do so directly in an SQL Statement by doing something along the lines of
SELECT Field1, Field2, ...
FROM YourTableName IN 'C:\...\...\DatabaseName.Extension'

When you say "append" tables, do you mean actually copy the table, or link to it?

I'm guessing that you mean you know how to import tables using the External Data tab and selecting Access and that you want to link to Access tables instead. Well, all you have to do is select the linking checkbox which is directly below the import checkbox on the popup that appears.

I would like from a file (where would be the code) link 4 tables from a file another file.

For the same file, the link is,but can I create this link from one file to another?

Hi. I think this is possible, but I can't find an example right now. I'll keep looking...
