MS Acces 2010 - Documenter

Hi Experts,

Someone just told me about Documenter in Access.  They quickly showed me that they brought in a table and were able to print out a report that shows columns.

My question is how do I do this in Access, they showed me the steps but it was to quick for me to learn how they did it?

So I will need steps on how to printout the reports.

Please help and thanks

Click: Database Tools-->Analyze-->Database Documenter
Select your Object
(Note that you can select multiple different objects at one time, if you want one report for the multiple objects)
Select your Options (the defaults should be fine for now, a test)
Click OK
As soon as you see the report click: Data-->More
...and save this report as w Word rtf (Rich Text) file. (provide a unique name, Access names all documenter reports with the same name: "doc_rptObjects")
...Note that Access will not save the report automatically for you, if you do not save it yourself.
