Listing Tables in a Microsoft Access Database

How to list All tables contained in a Database

You may at some point want to view a list of all of the tables contained within your Microsoft Access Database. Using the following code will allow you to quickly view all of the database table names that are stored:

Public Sub ListTables()

    Dim i As Integer
    On Error Resume Next
    For i = 0 To CurrentDb.TableDefs.Count - 1
        Debug.Print "Table: " & CurrentDb.TableDefs(i).Name
End Sub

If you now call ListTables from the Immediate window you'll now see a full list of tables listed.
