When you say meta data, I am assuming you mean information about the tables and structure of your database.

If that is what you want, go to Tools>Analyze>Documenter, and then follow the steps in the wizard to document your database.

If this post is related to posts regarding capturing information about the structure of an Access database for recreating that database in the future, I suggest you switch to SQL to get these features since they are part of the product. I don't recall that this feature set is available in Access. I know you can use VBA to create a table, but this is not usually done, as far as I know. Perhaps MSDE or SQL Express would help as well.

Anyway, if it is available, I am sure there is a poster here who will know about it. Perhaps you can contact an author of one of the Access books with this question if you haven't found it documented anywhere.
