God I hate documentation. I have to document the many and varied databases I have made whilst I’ve been here before I leave. The documenter in Access is meant to solve all your problems, but just creates page after page of pointless cack. In ’97 you could save the documenter results to a table, base a report on it and then export to Word. A little faffing around with the paragraph formatting and there y’go. It looks quite neat and professional (well, more professional than you’d expect from the likes of me anyway). Is this cool and useful tool in 2000? Noooooo, they’ve just decided to be clever and give you the shitty, poorly formatted report.

I’m boring you aren’t I? Terribly sorry. I’ll start talking about the war again……..
