Open the Database in MS Access

1. Goto 'Tools' Menu and click 'Options'
2. Select 'View' Tab and check the 'System Objects' and click OK
3. Again Clikc 'Tools' and Goto 'Security'and then click 'User and Group Permissions'
4. Select 'Permissions' Tab and select 'MSysObjects' from 'Object Name'
5. Set the Permission of 'Read','Update' or any which you need.
6. After that you can use the following Query

"Select Name from MSysObjects where name='Table Name Here' and type=1"
