How to have my SysObjects Query Listing All QueryNames Show the SQL

I have a Query against MsysObjects
SELECT DISTINCTROW MSysObjects.Name
FROM MSysObjects
WHERE (((MSysObjects.Name) Not Like "~*") AND ((MSysObjects.Type)=5))
ORDER BY MSysObjects.Name;

This shows me every query in the database which is helpful.  I wanted to have one more field which would be a memo field named SQL_Of_Query that would show me the SQL statement for each individual query that lists out.

How can I do that?

You have a System Table called MSysQueries that has the SQL in it. Your ID from the MSysObjects table will join to the ObjectID field in the MSysQueries table.

Here is the catch. The SQL is not in one pretty order for you. You have to put it together so to speak. Here are what the Attributes stand for.

6 - Select clause
5 - From clause
7 - Joins
8 - Where clause
11 - Order By clause

If you have an Union Query, then 5 will be your SQL Statement.

If you have a Pass-Through Query, then 1 will be your Pass-Through query statement.

Just create a function to extract and store the data.

1) Make a table (tblQueryData) with queryname and a memo field for the SQLtxt
2) Create function like:

function fncListQuery

dim rs as dao.recordset
dim qd as querydef

set rs = currentdb.openrecordset("tblQueryData")
'empty table before fill
currentdb.execute ("delete * from tblQueryData")

'loop through queries
for each qd in currentdb.querydefs
  'store date
  rs.addnew
  rs!queryname = qd.name
  rs!SQLtxt = qd.SQL
next

end function

3) Run the function to fill the table.

Nico is right about the easiest way to do it. I would go down that path instead of trying to do it all through the query which can be quite messy.
