msaccess error: could not create no modify design permission for table

msaccess error: could not create no modify design permission for table

msaccess error: could not create no modify design permission for table

(OP)
i have much more that 2GB of data in several .CSV files that I'm trying to convert into access databases. I've set up everything i need to read and write into the databases.

I have a "main" database that has the linked tables to all of these databases, which are named in sequence (as implied below).

I have the data-only databases made and ready.

Currently, I have a form in the main database that collects this data, creates the new data-only databases as neccissary, and then creates a linked table to this new data-only database. However, the migration is going too slowly and I want to create another series of access files that contain forms that handle pre-determined sections of the .CSV files.

What all of this boils down to is this:

A simplified version of what I currently have is this:
Set dbLocal = Currentdb()
Set tbfNewAttached = dbLocal.CreateTableDef("zzooo")
    With tbfNewAttached
      .Connect = ";database=K:\Common\Database\Aisin Hub\Tester Data\Tester Pass 000001.mdb"
      .SourceTableName = "Quality - Tester Pass"
    End With
dbLocal.TableDefs.Append tbfNewAttached
dbLocal.Close
Set dbLocal = Nothing
Set tbfNewAttached = Nothing


This works quite well, however I no longer want to create this linked table from the "main hub" database, so essentially what I want to do is this:

Set dbLocal = OpenDatabase("K:\Common\Database\Aisin Hub\Aisin.mdb")
Set tbfNewAttached = dbLocal.CreateTableDef("zzooo")
    With tbfNewAttached
      .Connect = ";database=K:\Common\Database\Aisin Hub\Tester Data\Tester Pass 000001.mdb"
      .SourceTableName = "Quality - Tester Pass"
    End With
dbLocal.TableDefs.Append tbfNewAttached
dbLocal.Close
Set dbLocal = Nothing
Set tbfNewAttached = Nothing


I get the subject error at the line "dbLocal.TableDefs.Append tbfNewAttached"

Any ideas?

Just FYI that is the upper limit allowed in a single mdb. Could it be that the limit is exceeded in one or more, including the "master"? Try a compact & repair on each and check sizes. If too big, time to upgrade to SQL Server or somesuch.

Ni neart go cur le cheile.
