// 1: Using ADOX:

uses
  
ComObj;

// You can with ADOX (Microsoft ADO Extensions for DDL and Security),

function CreateAccessDatabase(FileName: string): string;
var 
  
cat: OLEVariant;
begin
  
Result := '';
  try
    
cat := CreateOleObject('ADOX.Catalog');
    cat.Create('Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=' + FileName + ';');
    cat := NULL;
  except
    on 
e: Exception do Result := e.message;
  end;
end;


procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  
CreateAccessDatabase('c:\Testdb.mdb');
end;


// 2: Using ODBC:

const
  
ODBC_ADD_DSN = 1; // Add data source
  
ODBC_CONFIG_DSN = 2; // Configure (edit) data source
  
ODBC_REMOVE_DSN = 3; // Remove data source
  
ODBC_ADD_SYS_DSN = 4; // add a system DSN
  
ODBC_CONFIG_SYS_DSN = 5; // Configure a system DSN
  
ODBC_REMOVE_SYS_DSN = 6; // remove a system DSN
  
ODBC_REMOVE_DEFAULT_DSN = 7; // remove the default DSN

function SQLConfigDataSource(hwndParent: HWND;
  fRequest: Word;
  lpszDriver: LPCSTR;
  lpszAttributes: LPCSTR): BOOL; stdcallexternal 'ODBCCP32.DLL';

function CreateDB(const Database: string): Boolean;
begin
  
Result := SQLConfigDataSource(0, ODBC_ADD_DSN,
    'Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)', PChar('CREATE_DB=' + Database + ' General'#0));
end;

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  
CreateAccessDatabase('c:\Testdb.mdb');
end;
