Hello,

you can use the Database Documenter under Database tools and then after you click on it it will offer you option to select object which you want to document and after that you click ok it will provide you with details on the object (table) and then you can do usual options (print, save, email) and as you requested export of that report to excel..

You can also loop through the Fields collection, and then further through the Properties and Attributes of each Field. Something like this:

Dim dbs As DAO.Database
Dim tdf As DAO.TableDef
Dim fld As DAO.Field
Dim prp As DAO.Property

Set dbs = Currentdb
Set tdf = dbs.TableDefs("YourTAble")

For each fld in tdf.Fields
  '/ export to Excel here
  For each prp in fld.Properties
    '/ export Properties to Excel here
  Next prp
Next fld

For the "export" methods. you could use automation, or you could just dump everything to tables in your Access database, then use TransferSpreadsheet to move that over to a new Excel workbook.
