access vba - table columns not in form

There is a table and a form on the top of that table. Now overtime, users add in more columns to the table. The form still shows the old columns but not the newly added column. Is there a vba to do this so that it takes in the form name and table name as arguments and returns a list of columns that are in the table but not in the form itself  for example –
Function ShowNotinForm (myTblName,myFormName)
{
}

test this code


Function ShowNotinForm(myTblName As String, myFormName As String) As String
Dim strFields As String, rs As DAO.Recordset, j As Integer, db As DAO.Database
Dim ctl As Control, strControlSource As String
Set db = CurrentDb
DoCmd.OpenForm myFormName, acDesign, , , , acHidden
For Each ctl In Forms(myFormName).Controls
    If ctl.ControlType = acTextBox Then
        strControlSource = strControlSource & "," & ctl.ControlSource
    End If
Next
DoCmd.Close acForm, myFormName, acSaveNo
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("select * from [" & myTblName & "] where 1=0")
For j = 0 To rs.Fields.Count - 1
    If InStr(strControlSource, "," & rs(j).Name) = 0 Then
    strFields = strFields & "," & rs(j).Name
    End If
Next
ShowNotinForm = strFields
End Function
