Microsoft Access Control Type Documentation

There are lots of control types. You may want to see how common each type of control is used across your forms and reports. Total Access Analyzer provides reports to show a summary count of each control type across all your objects, and detailed reports sorting controls by type.

List of Controls for Control Types Introduced in Microsoft Access 2010

A separate report is available for just the control types introduced in MS Access 2010 and later (Empty Cell, Navigation Button, Navigation Control, and Web Browser Controls). This is useful for identifying forms and reports that are not compatible with Access 2007 or earlier.
