Document Synopsis

This agent creates a new document based off the document whose items you wish to examine. All item names and text values are compiled in a report.

It is coded as an agent to work with your mail d.b. and triggered off selected documents in a view. The report document is then placed in your inbox. You can tweek a few lines and use the code in any d.b. you wish.
