export forms?

hi folks,

is it somehow possible to export the DESIGN (not the data) of a form
into a textfile or something like this? and of course a have to
reimport this later.

i need to change multiple elements (exspecially the elementnames) in
multiple forms and this will be much easier in a textfile than the
annoying desingview of access.

thanks for any ideas

Yes. Use the Application.SaveAsText and Application.LoadFromText methods. A
simple GUI for this can be found at
