Hi Experts,

I am trying to get rid of many fields of a table that are not in use anymore, and we have a database of hundreds of queries and would like to know which of them would get affected by this change.

How can I loop all queries and get a list of all of them that are using one of those removed fields, which in that case when opening normally Access will display a message "enter parameter value.."

I guess something like the below for looping..
    For Each qdf In db.QueryDefs
        If Mid(qdf.Name, 1, 1) <> "~" Then
