  6. On the Output Details Page, select the options for your document.
    1. (For objects that contain forms) To create separate reports that outline information about the fields on the selected forms, select the Document Fields option, and then select one of the following options:
      • Summary — Lists a summary of details about each field. Details include field name, ID, type, length, and permissions. One summary document is created.
      • Detail — Lists details about the properties of each field on the selected forms. A separate document is created for the each form. The names for these separate documents include a prefix (if any), the form name, and a suffix called _Fields.
        For example, if you document the AlertList and Adhoc:Dialog forms (with a prefix of doc), a doc_forms document is created to describe the two forms. Additionally, the following documents are created to describe the details about the fields: doc_AlertList_Fields and doc_Adhoc_Dialog_Fields. (Special characters, such as colons [:], are replaced with a underscores [_].)
        The Document Fields option is disabled if you did not select any forms for the report.
    2. To specify what appears in the report for all objects, select one of the following options:
      • Regular — Lists all of the properties of the object
      • Help Text and Change History — Lists details about help text and change history only
    3. In the Output Details section, select one of the following options:
      • To File — If you select this option, select the file format (RTF, PDF, or HMTL). Optionally, include a prefix to add to each document's file name. Enter the path to the output folder.
        To open the folder that contains the files after you click Finish, select the Show Output Folder When Complete check box.


        The PDF option cannot generate Japanese characters. For objects in Japanese locales, select RTF or HTML.

      • To Printer — Click Print Setup to select a printer.
  7. Click Finish.
    The Progress tab displays the progress of the report creation.
    A document is created for each object type that you selected. For example, if you selected forms and their related objects, and active links were related to the forms, two documents would be created — one for the forms and one for the active links.
