AllViews Collection

Access Developer Reference

The AllViews collection contains an AccessObject for each view in the CurrentDa\ta or CodeData object.


The CurrentData or CodeData object has an AllViews collection containing AccessObject objects that describe instances of all views specified by CurrentData or CodeData. For example, you can enumerate the AllViews collection in Visual Basic to set or return the values of properties of individual AccessObject objects in the collection.

You can refer to an individual AccessObject object in the AllViews collection either by referring to the object by name, or by referring to its index within the collection. If you want to refer to a specific object in the AllViews collection, it's better to refer to the view by name because a view's collection index may change.

The AllViews collection is indexed beginning with zero. If you refer to a view by its index, the first view is AllViews(0), the second table is AllViews(1), and so on.

  • The AllViews collection only contains AccessObject objects within a Microsoft Access project (.adp). A Microsoft Access database does not contain any views, see the AllQueries collection.
  • To list all open views in the project, use the IsLoaded property of each AccessObject object in the AllViews collection. You can then use the Name property of each individual AccessObject object to return the name of a view.
  • You can't add or delete an AccessObject object from the AllViews collection.


The following example prints the name of each open AccessObject object in the AllViews collection.

Visual Basic for Applications
  Sub AllViews()
    Dim obj As AccessObject, dbs As Object
    Set dbs = Application.CurrentData
    ' Search for open AccessObject objects in AllViews collection.
    For Each obj In dbs.AllViews
        If obj.IsLoaded = True Then
            ' Print name of obj.
            Debug.Print obj.Name
        End If
    Next obj
End Sub
