Hey Experts,

I have a database in Access 2010.  Is there a way to create a report or export the entire database schema?

I can do individual tables, but with over 100 tables, I need a compilation report instead.

Thanks.

Are you just trying to get table and field names as well as data types?

I don't get an Analyze Group option.  Only Analyze Performance and Analyze Table

@jerryb30
yes, for all tables (over 100 tables)

I'm just surprised Access does not already have a tool installed for something like this.

For simple documentation (tables-fields-datatype)
try:

Look for 150, Listing table and query fields.
Can be adapted for lots of other field properties.

This is nice, though I could not get it to work with all the tables at once, I could get A LOT of info per table.
