    Is there anything is Access that can map the relationships between objects
    such as subform to recordsource and queries to tables and so on? I suppose I
    am talking about ERDs. If the Documenter can do anything like that I did not
    find it. Is Visio the only alternative? I have several objects that no longer
    perform a function but I just want to be sure I don't need them before I
    dump them.

    In addition to the software tools from FMS, Inc. that Peter recommended, two
    other third-party tools that allow you to search for specific text strings
    in the database are: Speed Ferret, from Black Moshannon Software,
    http://www.moshannon.com, and Find and Replace, from Rick Fisher Software,
    http://www.rickworld.com.

    I don't think an ERD tool or Visio is likely to provide the functionality
    you desire.
