    Documenter (Access97/SR2)

    I am not a programmer and do not know the proper or accepted way to document a database. I do know that Access's built in Documenter gives me way more than I want to know and not what I would actually like to see.

    Basically, I would like to be able to print out a list of all objects (tables, queries, etc.) and their fields plus I would like to see how everything interacts. A flow chart type drawing would be great. Something showing that Table1 & Table2 are combined to create Query1, which in turn creates Report1.

    Am I dreaming or is there something out there, at a reasonable cost, that would do this. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    You might try posting the question in Software Finds and Wants with a link back to this thread. Visio is the premiere product for this purpose, but it is definitely *not* inexpensive. As far as I know, there's nothing out there that will do it all for you, although Visio will definitely reverse engineer a database and allow you to document it graphically.
