You can, but it's not the simplest thing to do. You'd have to do something like this:

Dim dbs As DAO.Database
Dim tdf As DAO.Tabledef
Dim fld As DAO.Field
Dim vDefaultValue As Variant

Set dbs = CurrentDB
Set tdf = dbs.TableDefs("YourTable")
Set fld = tdf.Fields("YourField")

vDefaultValue = fld.DefaultValue
