    Extract table information from MS Access databse

    Hi Everyone,

    I have a MDB file which contains approximately 100 tables. I need to list all the tables along with information about fields (including name, type and size). Is there some tool for thsi purpose? or can I write some small application myself for this?

    I tried the Tools->Analyze->Documenter, but it just hung up my system and I could not do anything at all for a long time. So I ended the task.

    Can anybody tell me some tool/trick to do this work faster....

    please help....

    It is fairly easy to write an application to do this in VB 6.0 or .Net (like C# or VB.Net).

    A lot of tools can extract the information for you as well, like Visio, Enterprise Architect from Sparx Systems, and surely a lot of DB tools.
