Printing Table Designs
The Indexes window displays all the fields in the table that are indexes, their
default sort order (which you can change), and their index properties. The
index properties are as follows:
Primary: Yes when the field is the primary key for the table, No
otherwise.
Unique: Yes when the value of the field for each must be unique, No
otherwise.
Ignore Nulls: Yes when nulls (blanks) are excluded from the index,
No when nulls are included in the index.

Printing Table Designs
Printing the Design view of your table isn’t as easy as clicking the Print
button; as you may have noticed already, the Print button isn’t available
when Design view is displayed. Luckily, Access includes a cool feature called
the Documenter dialog box to help you document your database. To print
your field definitions with field properties, follow these steps:
1. Click the Database Documenter button in the Analyze group on the
Database Tools tab of the Ribbon.
Access displays the Documenter dialog box, shown in Figure 2-3. (Your
Documenter dialog box will show different objects.)
Figure 2-3:
The
Documenter
dialog box
displays
a tab for
each type of
object in the
database.
2. Click the Tables tab to display a list of tables in your database.
3. Select the table definition(s) you want to print by clicking the check
box in front of the table name.
Alternatively, click the Select All button to get the whole enchilada — all
the tables.
4. Click the Options button to display the Print Table Definition dialog
box, shown in Figure 2-4.
