If you add a reference to the "Microsoft Access 14.0 Object Library", or whichever version you have installed, then you should be able to open the database and loop over the queries using something like:

Module Module1

    Sub Main()
        Dim y As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Access.Dao.DBEngine()
        Dim x As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Access.Dao.Database = y.OpenDatabase("C:\path\to\database.accdb")

        For Each query As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Access.Dao.QueryDef In x.QueryDefs

    End Sub

End Module

Open in new window
