Hi. I am using the following code to list all the caption names of forms. Is there any way to do this without opening each form? Thanks

Sub oLoadFormsToCombo()

    On Error GoTo EH
        Dim frm As Object
        Dim I As Integer
        For I = Me.cmbFormNameAndCaption.ListCount - 1 To 0 Step -1
            Me.cmbFormNameAndCaption.RemoveItem (I)
        Next I
        Me.cmbFormNameAndCaption.Text = ""
        Me.cmbFormNameAndCaption.AddItem ("")
        For Each frm In CurrentProject.AllForms
            Me.Form_Name.AddItem (frm.Name)
            If frm.Name <> Me.Name And frm.Name <> "f_Login" And frm.Name <> "f_MainOptions" Then
                DoCmd.OpenForm frm.Name, acDesign, , , , acHidden
                Me.cmbFormNameAndCaption.AddItem (Forms(frm.Name).Caption)
                DoCmd.Close acForm, frm.Name
            End If
    Exit Sub
    MsgBox "Error loading forms: " & Err.Description
End Sub
