This is the simplest Method that I know for dynamically Linking a Table, just substitute your own values for the Constants (Lines 1 to 4). The following code will Link to the Employees Table in C:\Test\Northwind.mdb, the Name of this Table as displayed in your Database Window will be Employees_Local, and will consist of the data as well as the Structure of the Linked Table:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Const conEXTERNAL_DB_PATH  As String = "C:\Test\Northwind.mdb"
  2. Const conTABLE_TO_LINK As String = "Employees"
  3. Const conLOCAL_TABLE_NAME As String = "Employees_Local"
  4. Const conSTRUCTURE_ONLY As Boolean = False
  6. DoCmd.TransferDatabase acLink, "Microsoft Access", conEXTERNAL_DB_PATH, _
  7.                        acTable, conTABLE_TO_LINK, _
  8.                        conLOCAL_TABLE_NAME, conSTRUCTURE_ONLY
