Viewing the guts of a Microsoft Access form, query and report, programmatically

I have over 1000 MDB's which need to be checked to make sure they don't reference any external sources. So, I'm searching for 'A:', 'B:'... 'Z:', '', etc. I need to search the guts of each form, query definitions, and reports to find any references to something external. The data is done. Is there any way of viewing the 'guts' of a form in a table view? Is there a way of pulling this data into VB or Foxpro so it may be analyzed?

I have used a program called Speed Ferret to search database objects. It seems to work quite well; but I never analyzed 1000 mdb’s. The website is www.moshannon.com . I am sure there are other appliations out there as well.
