Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Make this the Row Source of the List Box:

SELECT MSysObjects.Name
FROM MSysObjects
WHERE (((MSysObjects.Type)=1))
ORDER BY MSysObjects.Name;

Mod to not show MSys tables (system tables):


SELECT MSysObjects.Name
FROM MSysObjects
WHERE (((MSysObjects.Type)=1) AND ((InStr(1,[Name],"MSys")=0)=True))
ORDER BY MSysObjects.Name;

To included Linked Tables:

SELECT MSysObjects.Name, IIf([Type]=6,"Yes","") AS Linked
FROM MSysObjects
WHERE (((MSysObjects.Type)=1 Or (MSysObjects.Type)=6) AND ((InStr(1,[Name],"MSys")=0)=True))
ORDER BY MSysObjects.Name;

You can revise the SQL MX posted to exclude system tables with something like this:

SELECT MSysObjects.Name
FROM MSysObjects
WHERE MSysObjects.Type=1 AND Left(MSysObjects.Name,4)<>"msys"
ORDER BY MSysObjects.Name;
