Checking Tables For Data

P: 8
Is there a way of running a query to check if there is any data in a table. What i need to do is check and see if any data at all has been submitted into the tables. In each table there are approx 30 fields and i don't want to list them all on a query as there are 2 x tables to check.
Is there some sort of query i could run to see if the table is empty or has data in it.

Yes there is in the criteria of your query you can put the "is null" and that will show you all the tables that are missing data. but when you enter the "is null" in the criteria, place it under the field you are checking. for instanct here is an example:

if your checking in a customer table to see if a customer doesn't have a phone number you would place the "is null" in that field (criteria) to check all the customers that have missing phonenumbers.

i think this is what your talking about.
