If you go into the desing view of the query, right click on it and select 'sql view' you will see the query in text format.

Try the following code to obtain the SQL for a query object in the current database:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Private Function GetQuerySQL(MyQueryName as String) as String
  2. Dim QD As DAO.QueryDef
  4. Set QD = CurrentDb.QueryDefs(MyQueryName)
  5. GetQuerySQL=QD.SQL
  7. End Function
FYI, the SQL property of a DAO.QueryDef object is read/write.
