    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.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
