Hi all!

I have an access database that contains information on employees and "out of office" records. I'm developing a webpage to access that information. Now I Would like to present the DDL for that database (CREATE DATABASE...etc) in a Q here at EE.

How can I do this in access 2003?

I'm afraid Access can't deliver this.
I know that some re-engineering tools will have this capability, check e.g.:

Thanks!

I suspected that after looking through the menus and the access help. I'll try the sybase modeling tool or move the db to MSSQL server which has this feature.

Thanks, but I believe that's included in access 2003. At least it has an Upsizing wizard in the tools-database utilitys menu.

So there definetely should be success :-)
