I inherited 3 applications from former staff that have lots of pieces to them that I think may have been rewritten (and replaced) though not removed from the applications. Is there a reliable utility available that can isolate uncalled Access components?

I like http://www.mztools.com/v3/download.aspx.  It's free and there are a lot of useful tools for VBA here - the Review Sourcecode utility reports on unused procedures and variables.

If you can throw money at the problem, get Total Access Analyzer from FMS.

Was hoping for a response that Googling wouldn't provide, more like a hidden gem.
