Where in MS Access Help or elsewhere can I get a list of, and information on, MS Access's built-in properties, such as the Description property of the tabledef object, or the startupform property of the database object?

Why dont u just go thru the list of properties that can exist?

Public Sub ListProps()

    Dim prp As DAO.Property
   
    On Error Resume Next
   
    For Each prp In CurrentDb.Properties
        Debug.Print prp.Name, prp.Value
    Next prp
End Sub


Or is there more u need
Have u looked in (from main access window)

Tools/Startup
File/Database Properties

to see some of the other properties

rocki,
This only shows the properties that exist, for example, if the database doesn't have a startupform, the property won't show up. I am looking for a complete list of all of Access's built-in property

bugger, I typed a post in and got white screen of death

anyways what I said earlier

I found my link
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/off2000/html/acproAllowFullMenus.asp

Ive given url to one property, use the left hand side to navigate to see others (if u scroll up, u can see the top node - called Properties)
then see from there

there is a lot but should hopefully help u out somewhat

rocki,
That's an excellent reference; thanks. But maybe you can help me navigate through it. For instance, if I wanted to know all of the properties for the database object (including AllowFullMenus property), where would i go?

Howdo, Ive searched hi and lo and couldnt find a definitive reference

Regarding the link above, I can only think of the painstaking task of going thru and look for words like

"append it to the Properties collection of the Database object."

Database object is the key

Sorry pal, I cant think of another way since I failed to find a definitive list.

Hi rocki,
Don't beat yourself up over this too much, your's is the best answer so far, and it's a great general reference to boot.
