Hi this should do it ..
Function FindTables(strArg As String) As String
'Lists tables which have the specified string in one of the field names
'Argument strArg , string being sought
Dim db As DAO.Database
Dim tbd As DAO.TableDef
Dim fld As DAO.Field
Dim strRes As String
Set db = CurrentDb
For Each tbd In db.TableDefs
    For Each fld In tbd.Fields
        If InStr(1, fld.Name, strArg) > 0 Then
            strRes = strRes & tbd.Name & " :: " & fld.Name & vbCrLf
        End If
Set db = Nothing
FindTables = strRes
End Function
