In an effort to 'clean up' my code and forms, I would like to apply a naming convention to all objects in the current project, renaming existing controls, forms, tables, querys, code modules, and subroutines and functions.

Is there a 'simple' way for doing this that will catch ALL references.  For instance, if I rename a form from Form1 to frmMainForm, and there is code or macros referencing the Form1 name, how can I be sure that all references are changed?

Just an additional word on Rick Fisher's Find & Replace.  Specifically, you want:

http://www.rickworld.com/products.html#Find%20and%20Replace%209.0

and I guarantee you F&R will find ALL references in ANY object, including queries where a Form may be referenced, etc.

And yest ... this is the 'simple' way.  
"how can I be sure that all references are changed?"
Because this product works.  I use it daily.
