global replace of form name in multiple queries

I've inherited a db and would like to change the name of one of the forms that is used to run multiple reports. However, the form name is used in multiple queries. Is there a way to do a global replace of the form name in all affected queries?

Thanks

You'll want to use a Find and Replace tool, like the one from Rick Fisher: www.rickworld.com. Access has a builtin F&R, but it won't work with query SQL. MZ-Tools has one as well, but I'm not sure it works on queries either: www.mz-tools.com

Perfect answer -- Rick Fisher's find and replace did the trick. Funky UI but highly functional code.

I'm also glad to know that I hadn't overlooked a built-in Access function that did this.

Thanks,
Scott
