Ok, I have a mdoule that exports all the Access 2003 objects and I am happy with that.  I had created a recovery database with teh code to bring all the objects into a blank data - however, to be honest, I can't find it!  Does anyone know teh simple code to bring in all the object that have been exported to text files by the attached code.  This code is fine, I just need the code to bring it into a new, blank database.
On Error GoTo Err_ExportDatabaseObjects
Dim db As DAO.Database
Dim td As DAO.TableDef
Dim d As Document
Dim C As Container
Dim i As Integer
    
    Set db = CurrentDb()
     
    For Each td In db.TableDefs 'Tables
        If Left(td.Name, 4) <> "MSys" Then
           DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, , td.Name, sExportLocation & "Table_" & td.Name & ".txt", True
       End If
   Next td
    
    Set C = db.Containers("Forms")
    For Each d In C.Documents
        Application.SaveAsText acForm, d.Name, sExportLocation & "Form_" & d.Name & ".txt"
    Next d
    
    Set C = db.Containers("Reports")
    For Each d In C.Documents
        Application.SaveAsText acReport, d.Name, sExportLocation & "Report_" & d.Name & ".txt"
    Next d
    
    Set C = db.Containers("Scripts")
    For Each d In C.Documents
        Application.SaveAsText acMacro, d.Name, sExportLocation & "Macro_" & d.Name & ".txt"
    Next d
    
    Set C = db.Containers("Modules")
    For Each d In C.Documents
        Application.SaveAsText acModule, d.Name, sExportLocation & "Module_" & d.Name & ".txt"
    Next d
    
    For i = 0 To db.QueryDefs.Count - 1
        Application.SaveAsText acQuery, db.QueryDefs(i).Name, sExportLocation & "Query_" & db.QueryDefs(i).Name & ".txt"
    Next i
    
    Set db = Nothing
    Set C = Nothing

Yes, this was it.  I am going to assume that for each object type, module, report, form, query, I would simply replace the acForm with the correct constant.

you can iterate all .txt file in the folder with

dim txtPath,txtFile
txtpath="c:\myfolder\"

txtfile=dir(txtPath & "*.txt")

while txtFile <>""
   select case left(txtfile,instr(txtFile,"_")-1)
         case "Form"

         case "Table"

         'etc...
   end select
