    Documenting (97)

    Hello All,

    I am wrapping up a project and preparing to document it.

    What I was hoping for is a tool that would be able to analyze the project and provide the documentation for me.

    To be a little more clear, I know Access provides it's own documentation but that's not what I'm looking for. I'm trying to find an effecient way to track what happens when something else happens in Access.

    For Instance, when the db opens, it's set to open the Switchboard, well everyone knows how to read the switchboard and documenting that would be easy. However, on the Switchboard, the user has an option of opening a form. In the form there may be an OnOpen Event, in the form is text box that may have an AfterUpdate Event, on the form may have an OnClose Event. So for this form I would like some sort of software or tool or code, that analyzes each form for all actions and provides a report specifying what each action takes place with each code for each form or report.

    I hope I'm making sense, of course as I type this, I do. But it may not be clear to you. Please, if it doesn't, let me know.....as this project is rather large and trying to document each peice of code or action would be as tedious as the actual developement of the project, perhaps more and certainly not as much fun.

    Thanks in advance.

    FMS, Inc., has a product called Total Access Analyzer that might do what you want, although it's on the pricey side.

    Pricey maybe, but IMHO it's well worth the $!

    Not only is it handy for doing much better documentation than you can with plain Access, it also performs a great deal of error-checking on your database, which is handy for preventing "surprises" down the road.
