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 21.11.

4.
Enable the check box to the left of each object that you want to document. You can click the Select All button to select all objects shown on a tab.

5.
Click the Options button to refine the level of detail provided for each object. Depending on which object type you selected, the Documenter displays different options. (The next section of this hour, “Using the Documenter Options,” covers Documenter options.)
