How to document MS Access .ADP objects

I have a requirement to document the forms and Modules used in an Access .adp project.  The project us a front end to a SQL server database.    I need a listing of the forms and modules, descriptions, last update date, etc.

Is there a table or some other resource where this info is stored that can be queried or otherwise dumped?

What version of Access? Most recent versions have a "Documenter", which can be used for basic stuff.

If you need cross-checking, usage, etc then Total Access Analyzer is the best tool I've found for that: http://www.fmsinc.com/MicrosoftAccess/BestPractices.html

Access 2010.  But what we think is happening is that this is an .ADP.    If it were a full access database and app, then some of the tools we're familiar with would be good.  But since it's an ADP, even the basic objects like forms dont get documnted.  

Or....maybe I'm not looking in the right place.  Please tell me where the Documenter is....

It's in the Database Tools ribbon tab, in the Analyze section.
