Quickent way to analyze an ACCESS database

Last Modified: 2015-07-20
I have a client that needs some changes to a database.  They have a restricted budget and I need to get this all done in two weeks.  However, the database has had at least five other developers working on it and from what I can tell, each basically re-wrote the database but kept all the legacy stuff from the prior developer!  This is a mess but what would be the quickest way to analyzed so I can distill down to what is actually being used other than going over each object and see what happens?  I tried using the documentor, but the forms output had over 2000 pages!
