Default Database Documenter - Maid to Order

I am enjoying going through the book, Professional Access 2013 Programming. The "different worlds" of Access Desktop programs and Access App programs was unexpected; but I'm dealing with it. The "missing" element in Access Apps which is creating the most frustration for me is the inability to use the Database Documenter on an Access App. The Maid to Order App is a wonderful example, I only wish that I could better understand its inner workings as to how its tables are related, etc. Is there a way to get the type of documentation that you normally can generate for a Desktop program, but for an App program instead? Or, is it possible the book authors have made (or possibly would make) available a PDF with that program fully documented? Thanks so much for your thoughts and help...

Thanks for the important question about documentation using the traditional Access tools. The short answer is no, the development environment for Access web apps does not include the tools to which you refer. This is a pain point which we all hope will eventually be addressed by Microsoft.

With regard to the full documentation of the Maid to Order sample web app. I have always thought of the book that way; it described the steps we went through to build it from start to finish. If you follow that process, you'll touch on all of the relevant factors.

However, that doesn't include a relationship diagram (that's not available, and may not ever be provided, I'm afraid.) It would be a wonderful addition to the design surface, though, wouldn't it?
