I want to know currently, if it is possible to Export an Access Form along with its controls to Visual Studio 2019?

If it is possible then can it be done using C#?

    If you want to go to extremes, you can export an Access form to a text file (Application.SaveAsText) and process the XML, or you can use Automation to iterate over a form's Controls collection and inspect the properties and create similar controls in Visual Studio.
    Perhaps worth the effort if you have to do thousands of forms; otherwise you may be better off creating them manually.
