1.
Make sure that the Database window is the active window.

2.
Choose Tools | Analyze | Documenter. The Documenter dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 34.11.

Figure 34.11. You can use the Documenter dialog box to designate which objects you want to document.


3.
Click the appropriate tab to select the type of object you want to document. To document a table, for example, click the Tables tab.

4.
Enable the checkbox to the left of each object that you want to document. You can click the Select All command button to select all objects of the selected type.

5.
Click the Options button to refine the level of detail provided for each object. Depending on which object type is selected, different options are displayed. Database Documenter options are covered in the next section of this chapter.

Repeat steps 3 through 5 to select all database objects that you want to document.

7.
Click OK when you are ready to produce the documentation.
