Recommendations for utility to search multpile Access databases?

Hello - can anybody recommend a decent tool that will search multiple Access mdb's/accdb's for a given table or query name, or a text fragment in VBA code?

Thanks

Ultra Edit would do that, but it won't give you anything other then the fact that it's there.

Ultra Edit is a file editing utility, so you would not be opening these as Access DB's, just as files.

I'm sure there's other editors out there that will search through files in a directory or files that are opened.

Ultra Edit is not free, but reasonable for what it offers.

Note that it won't work if the DB's are encrypted.

I don't know of one that will search multiple db's at a time, but my favorite is Rick Fisher's Find & Replace

Also, if these are MDE's, it won't find a fragement of code.  MDE's don't contain source.
