Printing a Table Definition

After you create several tables, you might want to print out their definitions to provide a permanent paper record. You can do this by clicking Database Documenter in the Analyze group of the Database Tools tab on the ribbon. Access 2010 displays several options in the Documenter dialog box.

You can select not only the types of objects you want to document but also which objects you want to document. Click Options to select what you want reported. For example, you can ask for the properties, relationships, and permissions for a table; the names, data types, sizes, and properties for fields; and the names, fields, and properties for indexes. Click OK in the Documenter dialog box to produce the report and view it in Print Preview.
