MS Word form properties

Hello experts,  I am delving into MS Word forms for the first time.  I think I have them pretty much figured out but do have a question.  In MS Access I can print off a document that shows the properties for a given object.  Tables, forms, reports, macros, queries, I can see all the properties of these objects by going into documenter and generating a report on a given object.

When I go into a Word form, it seems that the documentation features there are more limited.  About the best I can do is print off the document showing field types (I discovered that in the options for the document).  Is there any mechanism in Word which will generate a comprehensive report for a given document that shows the document and then lists the document fields and their properties?

Thanks in advance.

It would need some code to list the document components, which can be of many types, including fields, form fields, bookmarks, tables, pictures, text boxes, active X controls, content controls, lists, comments and tracked changes.
