It isn't going to be identical, but Access does provide a means of accessign the information. depends on whether you are using ADO or DAO.
for ADO most of the objects / collectiosn you wan tot retrieve are in the ADOX library extension. Youc an iterate through the varius collections to find the data that you require. I had a look a long while ago, but struggled to retrieve the data type - but that was a mapping issue (connverting from the visible represenataion to access internal storage values).
It can be done, its on my 'to do list' to improve the documentor function, however as I haven't won the lottery yet I just gotta keep working on fee paying work.
