Help..CreateTable/DestroyTable

I need assistance on how after creating a paradox table I can later test
for its existence and when finished with it, destroy it, I have tried
using OpenFile('Table.db', of_exist..etc) but I get an error message
which I don't understand, perhaps I'm not using the correct code for the
purpose.

Is there a scatter/gather technique in delphi ala clipper?
