Search for Field Name in Table

P: n/a
How do I search for the existence of a field name in a table?

I don't want to do this programmatically: I'm sitting at the screen,
looking at the table's design view, and there are just too many fields
for me to scroll through and confidently conclude that the name I'm
looking for simply isn't there.

Access isn't responding to the usual <ctrl-f> command for bringing up
a find window.

(If there isn't any other way, I'd appreciate code that will run from
the immediate window, although I've never run anything that way before)

thanks, --thelma

Although I would not say this is much easier than coding the search,
you could use the Documenter (Tools > Analyze > Documenter) to document
the table then export the results to Word or Excel, which can search
for the particular column name you want.
