The table creation happens when you save it to the file, others are preparation
to  table creation.

May be you reached the mdb file limit on database table number, which OOo can

Can you create Table with SQL? Tools>SQL... command window.
For example with this script (it is working for me), runs without error.
Copy, this script into command window, execute it, and refresh Tables with menu
View>Refresh tables:

CompanyName TEXT(40) NOT NULL,
ContactName TEXT(30),
ContactTitle TEXT(30),
Address TEXT(60),
City TEXT(15),
Region TEXT(15),
PostalCode TEXT(10),
Country TEXT(15),
Phone TEXT(24),
Fax TEXT(24))

Not use standalone .odb file, it can lost your data, use real database
server(MySQL, Postgres or others) and connect to it.
