    Documenter Anomaly

    In AC2010, I ran Documenter separately for each object in an application called SIMS (developed in AC2003) and then printed object each as a separate pdf. The Modules block was 74 pages; the Macros block was 125 pages; the Tables block was 2335 pages; the Queries block was 12,989 pages and the Forms block was only 1 page (empty except for header info). After clicking 'Select All' on the 'Forms' tab, I noticed that immediately after clicking 'Run' on the Forms documenter, there was a message of " You've entered an expression that has no value." Within 4-5 seconds, the report appeared as a one (1) page blank document with only the header information for 'Forms' no detail of any of the 100+ forms.


    Any thoughts as to the 'Forms' anomaly are greatly appreciated.
    Thx...Earl

    Just curious --- how many tables in the database to result in 2335 pages; Queries block was 12,989 pages??
    What are you going to/did you do with the output?

    Good luck with your project.

    Understanding first, I designed SIMS ("Security Information Management System") as a database to encompass all facets of a Corporate Security unit within a business entity, very similar to a small police department's needs. Second, there are 34 security related business functional 'modules' comprised within SIMS which I have been evolving in development since 2005. To answer your question directly, there are 308 tables and 1339 queries. All I'm trying to do at this point is document how many objects are in SIMS. Although I know there are 393 Forms, Documenter will not print them, as I described in my initial post.

    thx...
