I have an Access database that connects to a SQL server.  We are doing a ton of rewrites because of our external systems that have changed and they feed into this ordering database.

Is there a utility that will into an access database and tell you EVERYWHERE you used a field or table?

For example, I want to unlink a Table SSTAR_Orders.  I want something to tell me every form, query, report, module, VB code etc that used it so that I can redirect it somewhere else.  Others I don't want to redirect, but just remove, so just need to go clean them up.

Is this possible??
