Hello all,

I want to try and get a list of each report in an access database and the record source that is on that report?  Any way to do this with a module script or find tool etc?

You can use the built in Database Documenter to do this.

If that's not sufficient for you you can use the Total Access Analyzer, which is hands-down the best Access documenter I've used:

There's also Rick Fisher's excellent Find and Replace, which can give you quite a bit of this sort of information:

Try this in a command click event in a form: the code lists the Report name and the corresponding record source.

Private Sub cmdCheck_Click()
    Dim ro As AccessObject
    For Each ro In CurrentProject.AllReports
        DoCmd.OpenReport ro.Name, acViewDesign
        Reports(ro.Name).Visible = False
        Debug.Print ro.Name, Reports(ro.Name).RecordSource
        DoCmd.Close acReport, ro.Name, acSaveNo
    Next
End Sub
