Access vba visual field linking

I'm building an access form where I want to give the user the ability to link fields between two tables, just like what is offered in the query design view.

Is there something, i.e. an ActiveX control, that will display the field list of two tables and allow mouse-drag linking?

Thanks.

Yes and No.
One of the options of a combo/listbox is to show the field list of the table/query.  That's the yes part.  The No part is there is no built in drag and drop feature.  You will need to code your own.  For something like this, I don't actually implement drag and drop.  I use two multi-select listboxes with arrows between them - (>, >>, <, <<)  The double arrows bring everything one way or the other.  The single arrows move the selected items.

Thanks, that's what I thought.  I'm currently using a combination of listboxes and nodes for the mouse drag which is close but I didn't know if there was a specific solution to replicate the query designer events.
Thanks for the help.
