Documenting your database
You can create reports that describe the design and properties of the
objects in your database. With the database open and all objects closed,
click the Database Documenter button in the Analyze group on the Database
Tools tab of the Ribbon to open the Documenter dialog box.
The Documenter dialog box looks and works just like the Performance
Analyzer dialog box (refer to Figure 1-5, earlier in this chapter). You click
tabs and select check boxes to specify which objects in your database you
want to document. When you click OK, Access creates a report showing
details on the properties of the object. If you select a table, the report looks
similar to Figure 1-7, including information about the table and each field
(column) in the table. The report for a form or report includes the properties
of all the controls in the form or report design.

about a
form.
Choose just one object to document at a time; the report can be many pages
long!
Loading and Managing Add-Ins
Like all the programs in Microsoft Office, Access allows you to extend its
functionality with add-ins — custom components, usually created by
professional programmers. If you work in a large corporation that has an information
technology (IT) department, programmers may create an add-in to make
Access easier to use with your company’s data.
