Finding dataabses with a front end

P: n/a
I have been tasked to find all our Access databases on the system, I
have ran

\\ldrive\folder\*.md* /S/B >C:\DBfiles.txt

Which gave me every access file on the specified drive/folder.

Is there anyway I can tell dos to only find databases with a front end
or vice versa (databases without a front end)

However, nothing prevents you from processing that file, and opening
each file individually and checking it out. You would have to apply a
somewhat arbitrary rule, such as "a back-end is a database without any
forms or reports objects".
