    Documenting DBs (2003)

    If someone is taking over/taking an interest in a DB, it's very hard (or it is for me) to understand all that's going on. The 'basic' items like Tables, Queries etc only tell a limited story while behind the scenes (forms, for example) there are all sorts of events and VBA code. - either code associated with the events or supporting code.

    Does it have to be a separate document or is there a way of 'documenting' within Access?
    Thanks

    Access does have a documentation feature of sorts: Tools | Analyze | Documenter. You can specidy how detailed the documentation should be. The result is a report that can be printed or exported, not saved.
    There are also third-party documenter utilities.
