A5Doc is the only tool to capture every object on the Alpha Five control panel for searching and printing.  It is the only tool sold by Alpha Software for database documentation.  In fact, Alpha is the exclusive sales agent for A5Doc.

Basically, A5Doc gives you x-ray vision into your database.  It finds every script, both Action and Xbasic, in every possible location - from layout events, to toolbar icons, to field rules.  It captures layout calculated fields, object names, and filters.  It documents the Xbasic for every operation in the database.

Within Alpha Five, all of these things can be seen in design mode, but it is not possible to print them, or to search them.  A5Doc does it quickly and easily, and lets you customize the output.  This is, by far, the most reliable and complete way to see what is happening inside an Alpha Five database.   Most importantly, A5Doc provides sophisticated search capabilities to let you analyze all this documentation.
