JDBC-ODBC - Creating New Tables in MS Access Database

This section describes how to create a new table in a MS Access database through the JDBC-ODBC driver.

The first test I did was to add another table in my Access database. This was done by running the CREATE TABLE statement with the executeUpdate() method. Here is the sample program I used to create a new table called, HY_Addess:

/* OdbcAccessCreateTable.java
 - Copyright (c) 2015, HerongYang.com, All Rights Reserved.
import java.sql.*;
public class OdbcAccessCreateTable {
  public static void main(String [] args) {
    Connection con = null;
    try {
      con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:HY_ACCESS");

// Creating a database table
      Statement sta = con.createStatement(); 
      int count = sta.executeUpdate(
        "CREATE TABLE HY_Address (ID INT, StreetName VARCHAR(20),"
        + " City VARCHAR(20))");
      System.out.println("Table created.");

    } catch (Exception e) {
      System.err.println("Exception: "+e.getMessage());

The ODBC driver allowed me to create tables and there was no execution errors. See the output below:


C:\herong>\progra~1\java\jdk1.7.0_45\bin\java OdbcAccessCreateTable

Table created.
