Microsoft Access 2007 Database Documenter

I am using the Database Documenter tool from within Microsoft Access 2007 to document my database entities, such as tables, queries, macros, etc.  I cannot seem to be able to make it take advantage of landscape out.  It insists on "squashing" everything into a portait, narrow output format, causing the data values to be wrapped.

Is there a way to have the documenter output the information in a csv or Excel format that is not "prettified"?  I simply want the output to not have the data wrapped.  For example, a macro TransferText filename is always wrapped so I cannot simply output the data and search for a filename, because the filename is wrapped and broken up.

I hope this makes sense.  Thank you for any and all help!

There is no way to change this that I know of.

Sure you can change the Orientation "After" the report is generated, put the design will still be Portrait.

Then only thing you can try is selecting fewer Options form the dialog box.

Another option would be to use a third party Documenter like this:

There is a free demo too
