List of controls on form and data sources with VBA

I have a database that has hundreds(!) of columns in one of the tables.  However, I don't think all of them are used.  Is there a way I can get a list of all the controls on a form and their column data source so I can weed out the unused columns in the table?

Dim ctl As Control
DoCmd.OpenForm "formx", , , , , acHidden
For Each ctl In Forms("formx").Controls
    If ctl.ControlType <> acLabel Then
        Debug.Print ctl.Name & "> Data Source : " & ctl.ControlSource
    End If
