Chapter 4. Creating Your Database and Tables > Printing a Table Definition

Printing a Table Definition

After you create several tables, you might want to print out their definitions to provide a permanent paper record. You can do this by selecting Analyze on the Tools menu and then choosing Documenter from the submenu. Microsoft Access displays several options in the Documenter dialog box, as shown in Figure 4-39.

You can select not only the type of object you want to document but also which objects you want to document. Click the Options button to select what you want reported. For example, you can ask for the properties, relationships, and permissions for a table; the names, data types, sizes, and properties for fields; and the names, fields, and properties for indexes. Click OK in the Documenter dialog box to produce the report and view it in Print Preview, as shown in Figure 4-40.
