How do I get a list of objects & types for my db? by jgoodman00
Posted: 12 Dec 03

All of the objects in an AccessDB are stored in the MSysObjects table. Most of the columns are of little use, but two are very useful; namely the Name column & the Type column.

Using these two columns you can easily select all objects & see what type they are.

The Type column is an integer data-type, with the following values for common objects:

Types
Table = 1
Query = 5
Form = -32768
Report = -32764


So, to view all queries in your database, you can execute the query:
SELECT Name FROM MSysObjects WHERE Type = 5

And so on...
