Using Access 2007 VBA code, how do I get all the field names from the table Invoices.

Link your SQL Server table into your Access database, and create a module that you can run with the code shown here:  TableInfo() function

if you can already query the table (ADODB), you simply can run this query
SELECT * FROM Invoices WHERE 1 = 0

Open in new window

, and loop on the recordset's FIELDS collection.

Here's some code you could play with:
    Dim rs As Recordset
    Dim fld As Field
    
    Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("Select * From TABLENAME Where FALSE")
    For Each fld In rs.Fields
        Debug.Print fld.Name
    Next
    rs.Close
    Set rs = Nothing

Open in new window
