Lack of Database Documenter for Access 2013 Apps
Posted on 2014-07-24
When editing an Access 2013 App, the ribbon does not include the Database Documenter under the Database Tools tab. I understand that the reasoning behind this situation is that the data tables are being stored in SQL tables on SharePoint, but that doesn't make up for the frustration of not being able to generate the type of documentation which is possible for an Access 2013 Desktop program. Related to this is the lack of being able to graphically view the relationships between tables; again, I already understand that the "relationships" are built in a lookup field that gets values from a related field in another table. But knowing that doesn't solve the lack of being able to view and document what's going on... Any suggestions for documenting an existing Access 2013 App which is running on SharePoint?
