Printing a List of Acess Forms

Hi Experts,

Is there any quick way that I can print out a list of Access forms that are within a .accdb file?

I don't need anything fancy just a quick list.

Thank you,

From the OnClick event procedure of a command button on a form:

Dim i As Integer
With CodeProject
For i = 0 To .AllForms.Count - 1
    Debug.Print .AllForms(i).Name
Next i
End With

Open in new window

The output will show up in the Immediate Window. Press Ctrl-G while editing Visual Basic code to see the Immediate Window.

test this

Sub ListForms()
Dim db As database
Dim d As Document
Dim C As Container
Set db = CurrentDb()
Set C = db.Containers("Forms")
For Each d In C.Documents
    Debug.Print d.Name
Next d
End Sub
You can use a query which gives you some flexibility on how you use the output.

SELECT MSysObjects.Name, MSysObjects.Type
FROM MSysObjects
WHERE (((MSysObjects.Type)=-32768))
ORDER BY MSysObjects.Name;

If you can't see the MSys tables, you can show them by going to Navigation Options and checking the Show System Objects box.

Each object type has a unique type code.  The MSys tables are not documented but if you have a database with a variety of objects, you should be able to see most of the available types.  Here's a list from my explorations:
Type      TypeDesc
-32768      Form
-32766      Macro
-32764      Reports
-32761      Module
-32758      Users
-32757      Database Document
-32756      Data Access Pages
1      Table - Local Access Tables
2      Access Object - Database
3      Access Object - Containers
4      Table - Linked ODBC Tables
5      Queries
6      Table - Linked Access Tables
8      Relationships
9      Constraints
