Is there a way to search through all objects of a database to see if a particular object is being used?  FOr example, if I want to delete a query but don't know if it is being used in a macro or another query or a report, is there a quick was to search and find out?

Depending on what you're trying to accomplish, and the size of the database, the safest way to find out is to rename the object by putting an x in front of the name and then running the all of the code, queries, macros, etc.  If something doesn't work, just remove the x.
