creating an HTML library of objects

P: n/a
Hi Friends

I am thinking about making an HTML library of all my objects in my database.
Has anyone done this before???? Keen to get your ideas.

Here is the structure of my library:

Table Groups (e.g. data tables, look up tables, etc....)
Table
Fields
Queries Groups
Query
Fields
Forms Groups
Controls
Macros
I only have one - the autoexec
Modules Groups
Module
Procedures
Variables
Classes (I have one now....)

I have created several tables in which I have descriptions for all the
objects listed above (e.g. a table which tells me the meaning of each field
name (e.g. ID = unique record identifier....) for all the table and query
fields, I will used the controltiptext for the description of each control
in each form, etc....)

Making the actual HTML is no problem (if anyone wants to know how I do this,
please ask), I am more interested in ideas if maybe someone has done this
sort of thing before.

I am just interested in knowing what an "HTML library of all my objects in
my database" _is_? Is it just documentation to display that happens to be
coded with HTML markup, or something else?

There are both free and fee tools for documenting databases from the rather
simple "Documenter" in Access' Tools to FMS, Inc.'s "Total Access Analyzer".
I am not aware of any of these that record the output in HTML... but then
that may not be what you mean.

Why not use the Notes/Desc property for the fields/table/etc?
(e.g. a table which tells me the meaning of each

Had no need to:)

sorry, I should explained myself more clearly.

My inspiration came from http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/

Here, you can look up any object in Java, see what methods it contains,
etc...
