design document - for tables

I need to create a design document (in word) that lists the field per each table and the data type. Any way i could export this stuff to word (or excel) so i don't have to type each of these items into word.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I'm going to guess that a .pdf would suffice.  Try the Database Documenter on the Database Tools tab.  Play with the options until you get only what you need.  The report can be quite verbose.  You could try exporting to Word but I find that the Access-Word export is pretty useless.

When you create the Documentation document, (as Pat Stated above) there is an export option under the Data tab:

@Pat.
It's pretty good, ...but, at times it is still not quite "exact"
