Searching .mdb files

P: n/a
I have an Access app where I am not quite sure where "things are
sitting" (.mdb, .html, .asp, JavaScript).

Is there some search tools which will search Access .mdb files for
strings?

Thanks
Olav

Two third-party products are well-thought of: Speed Ferret
(http://www.moshannon.com) and Find and Replace (http://www.rickworld.com).
I am not quite sure what you mean by your first statement... an .MDB
contains Access objects of various kinds, some of which can contain the text
for .html, .asp, or javascript, but those are not Access objects.

Sorry should be "web app", not "Access app". Guess it makes it clear,
but the problem is that I dont know where the things I see in my
browser comes from - .html files, .asp files, one of many .mdb files.

The tools suggested seems to be good solutions, except that I have to
do each file individually. So thanks!
