Chapter 19. Using External Data > Creating an External Table

Creating an External Table

Not only can you link to existing tables, but you can even create new external tables. This means that you actually can design a FoxPro, Paradox, or other type of table using VBA code. The table resides on disk as an independent entity and can be used by its native application and as an external linked table in Access.

Sometimes, it is necessary for your application to provide another application with a data file. That other application might not be capable of reading an Access table. Therefore, you must create the file in a format native to the application that needs to read it.
