Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Printing the blueprint of your database with the Database Documenter, part of Access 2016 Essential Training.
- Occasionally, you may need to provide a written set…of specifications on how your database was created,…and all of the details about what makes it tick.…A tool called the Database Documenter…makes that task as easy as pressing the print button.…You'll find it in the Database Tools section of the ribbon,…and it's this button here called Database Documenter.…When I click on it, the Documenter window opens,…and it shows me all the different objects…that are inside my database organized into different tabs.…So I have a tab for Tables, Queries, Forms, and so on.…Within each of these tabs I have the…different objects in my database,…so feel free to select as many…or as few of these as you'd like.…
I'm going to put a check into the Guests table here,…and then switch over to the Queries here,…and put a check mark into the DailyCheckIns query there.…Once we've selected the objects…we want to get to the documentation on,…we'll go ahead and press the OK button here,…and the report will run.…When it finishes, then it'll put us into Print Preview mode,…
