I want to delete queries in my db that have any of the names but not the word "column", will this work?

For Each Qry In Db.QueryDefs


Select Case Qry.Name
 
Case InStr(Qry.Name, "abi") <> 0 And InStr(Qry.Name, "column") > 0
DoCmd.DeleteObject acQuery, Qry.Name

Case InStr(Qry.Name, "cap") <> 0 And InStr(Qry.Name, "column") > 0
DoCmd.DeleteObject acQuery, Qry.Name

Case InStr(Qry.Name, "glass") <> 0 And InStr(Qry.Name, "column") > 0
DoCmd.DeleteObject acQuery, Qry.Name

Case InStr(Qry.Name, "kee") <> 0 And InStr(Qry.Name, "column") > 0
DoCmd.DeleteObject acQuery, Qry.Name

Case InStr(Qry.Name, "smmt") <> 0 And InStr(Qry.Name, "column") > 0
DoCmd.DeleteObject acQuery, Qry.Name



End Select

 
 
 
 
 
Next

do you mean, if the name of the query is "qry_whatever_column" which have the word "column" in the name, delete the query?


For Each Qry In Db.QueryDefs
    if InStr(Qry.Name, "column") > 0 then
          DoCmd.DeleteObject acQuery, Qry.Name
   end if
next
