Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Are you trying to identify the explicit relationships (defined in the UI) or the implicit relationships (established in queries)?

For explicit relationships, use this:
Option Explicit


Sub Q_28595093()
    Dim rel As Relation
    Dim dbRels As Relations
    Dim dicUnique As Object
    Dim tbl As TableDef
    
    Set dicUnique = CreateObject("scripting.dictionary")
    Set dbRels = DBEngine(0)(0).Relations
    For Each rel In dbRels
        If dicUnique.Exists(rel.Table) Then
            dicUnique.Exists(rel.Table) = dicUnique.Exists(rel.Table) + 1
        Else
            dicUnique.Add rel.Table, 1
        End If
        If dicUnique.Exists(rel.ForeignTable) Then
            dicUnique.Exists(rel.ForeignTable) = dicUnique.Exists(rel.ForeignTable) + 1
        Else
            dicUnique.Add rel.ForeignTable, 1
        End If
    Next
    For Each tbl In DBEngine(0)(0).TableDefs
        If dicUnique.Exists(tbl.Name) Then
        Else
            Debug.Print tbl.Name, "has no defined relation"
        End If
    Next
End Sub

Hi aikimark,

Thank You responding.
My apologies for my delayed response.

I'm trying to identify tables which do not have explicit relationships.

I tried running your code but get error:

Run-time error '451':
Property let procedure not defined and property get procedure did not return an object

on line 19

Kind Regards,
Mohamed

Oops.  Please test this version:

    Dim rel As Relation
    Dim dbRels As Relations
    Dim dicUnique As Object
    Dim tbl As TableDef

    Set dbRels = DBEngine(0)(0).Relations
    For Each rel In dbRels
        If dicUnique.Exists(rel.Table) Then
            dicUnique.Exists(rel.Table) = dicUnique.Exists(rel.Table) + 1
        Else
            dicUnique.Add rel.Table, 1
        End If
        If dicUnique.Exists(rel.ForeignTable) Then
            dicUnique.Exists(rel.ForeignTable) = dicUnique(rel.ForeignTable) + 1
        Else
            dicUnique.Add rel.ForeignTable, 1
        End If
    Next
    For Each tbl In DBEngine(0)(0).TableDefs
