So long story short


 I need software that if i select a database field it will tell me the source table/view etc its from and any dependency if I change the field, i.e. other views, reports etc.


It does not need to read/connect to the database, all info can be entered/imported in manually.


 So if i pick "customerID" it will tell me that it is from "customer table" and also "sales table" and dependency on "sales report by customer" + anything else.




I would just make it in MS access but if there is something already out there then I won't have to touch access :)

It is an access database and you are developing in access or something different?

gzt: It is an access database and you are developing in access or something different?




No i don't want to develop it at all, just want a program that is already made, if needed I can make it in access but I am super lazy :P


So just asking if anyone already knows of software that does this, I select a value from a field it then tells me where the field is and what else uses the field.


I can enter everything in manually, I just need a system if I update something I know i have to go and update other things before I have someone ring me and say it's all broken.




So lets say I have a bakery


I enter in "Flour", it tells me it's from "Supplier 1" and "supplier 4" it then tells me I use it to make "Muffins" and "brownies"


So if i change "flour" to something else then I can no longer make "muffins" or "brownies" unless I update those :P

What database is being used?


Edit: I see, you want something where you can enter the schema and it will do the cross-reference, without accessing the database directly...
