Is it OK to use DAO?

Actually, it doesn't matter.
Open a recordset with the following SQL.

If you use DAO:

Code: Select all

    SQL = "SELECT MSysObjects.Name FROM MSysObjects WHERE MSysObjects.Name Like '[0-9][0-9]*' AND MSysObjects.Type=1"
If you use ADODB:

Code: Select all

    SQL = "SELECT MSysObjects.Name FROM MSysObjects WHERE MSysObjects.Name Like '[0-9][0-9]%' AND MSysObjects.Type=1"
Best wishes,
Hans
