Hi,
I think it would be useful to have the possibility of reading (and of course
writing) a description of tables, forms and reports. This is in order to explain
(or remember) the purpose of these objects. It would be very useful for people
who use the database for the first time to understand or for teaching.
This information could appear in the part named "Description" (in the right top
of the main database window. (see attachment)
Of course, we can yet insert a description for the fields of a table but it's
different.

Yes this would be helpfull. For Forms you can add a description in the dokument
properties of the form dukument. This description will be displayed on the left
side of the form tree. 

But for tables and queries this is still missing, so I reassign this to the
requirements team.

Thanks for your answer Msc.
I didn't know the possibility for the forms.
