Generate a "data dictionary" on an Access table

P: n/a
Is there a way to generate a listing of some/all of the "field descriptors"
for an ACCESS table?
I am a SAS user and am looking for something like SAS's proc CONTENTS which
generates a basic "data dictionary" on a SAS dataset.

Is there something like this 'built into' MS-ACCESS?

Thanks.

Kenneth,
There is the Database Documenter tool which generates an .rtf document that
is nice looking but of limited use. I ended up rolling one of my own for
Charles Schwab.

Danny Lesandrini wrote one a while back... I have to see if I can find
his website (kinda hard when my system insists on blowing up with
amazing frequency!)

then download the DataFast Utility.
