VBA code to print a list of tables (with fields) by randysmid
Posted: 15 Oct 03

Hi,
Here is VBA code that will print a list of non-system tables within a database.  Optionally, it will print a list of all fields as well.  The output for this will go into the Immediate Window, which is accessible via CTRL-G.  The results of this can be dropped into Word, or even Notepad for printing.

You may want to place this code into a new Module, perhaps called "modTableInfo".

Public Sub GetTableInfo()
   Dim db As Database, tbl As TableDef, fld As Field
   Set db = CurrentDb
   Debug.Print "            ", db.Name
   Debug.Print "      "
   Debug.Print "Table         Created          Modified              # Recs"
   Debug.Print "-----         -------          --------              ------"
   For Each tbl In db.TableDefs
     If Left$(tbl.Name, 4) <> "MSys" Then
       Debug.Print tbl.Name & "      " & tbl.DateCreated & "      " & _
        tbl.LastUpdated & "     " & tbl.RecordCount
       ' optional code to print all the fields
         'For Each fld In tbl.Fields
         '   Debug.Print fld.Name
         'Next fld
     End If
   Next tbl
End Sub
