    Delete object (Access 2000)

    I am deleting a series of objects where only the last two letters differ.Is it possible to build only one line of command to delete all the objects having one and the same beginning "qryOnStock" ?

    For example :
    DoCmd.DeleteObject "QryOnStockSo"
    DoCmd.DeleteObject "QryOnStockVa"
    DoCmd.DeleteObject "QryOnStockTr"
    etc etc

    No, you can't do that in one line. But you can create a procedure that loops through the collection of queries and deletes the queries whose name begins with a specified text:
    Sub DeleteQueriesBeginningWith(strName As String)
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim dbs As DAO.Database
    Dim qdfs As DAO.QueryDefs

    On Error GoTo ErrHandler

    Set dbs = CurrentDb
    Set qdfs = dbs.QueryDefs
    For i = qdfs.Count - 1 To 0 Step -1
    If Left(qdfs(i).Name, Len(strName)) = strName Then
    qdfs.Delete qdfs(i).Name
    End If
    Next i

    Set qdfs = Nothing
    Set dbs = Nothing
    Exit Sub

    MsgBox Err.Description, vbExclamation
    Resume ExitHandler
    End Sub
    Use it like this:
    Sub DeleteQueries()
    DeleteQueriesBeginningWith "qryOnStock"
    End Sub
    Be careful: test on a copy of your database first.
