I wish to delete a control from a very large project.  Is there a way to list all places in the project where the item is used?  I thought I'd removed all traces of it but still receive the error "Can't remove control or reference; in use"  
Thank you for your help.

One of the controls is SSCALA32.ocx.  Over the years it has been used many times throughout the project and named a number of different things.  I am looking for a way to list all the places where it has been used so I can delete it.  I'm not sure how to accomplish that using Ctrl_F.

Okay, sorry I misunderstood. How about opening the frm files in NotePad and looing for the name of the control?

That should be 'looking'.
