    It's possible to use a parameter at IN clause that take the name of a
    database in a make table query that can be reused in the same front
    end for different back end databases? Like this:

    INSERT INTO table
    IN Param ...

    In code:

    dim db as database
    dim qdf as querydef

    set db=currentdb
    set qdf=db.querydefs("qryname")
    qdf("Param")="c:\mydatabase"
    db.execute dbfailonerror

    I have a error that can't use database type. How can I resolve this?

    No, not to my knowledge. You can use parameters for calculated fields
    or for query criteria but not for "structural" things like this.

    You'll need to build the SQL string in code and execute it.
