Database documentation tools

Does anyone know of good tools to help with database documentation?

I'd like -- ideally -- to be able to produce a document describing the
entity relationships and let the tool generate the database.

I'd also like some way to control/document all the little changes that users
can make directly within the database client program.

For example, if you have an application in Microsoft Access, you can tinker
with macros, BASIC programs, queries, forms, and reports -- as well as the
basic tables and their relationships. When you're done, you probably have
little idea of where you are, less of how you got there, and no chance at
all to go back reliably to a randomly chosen point in the history of the
development.

Anybody know anything that will help? ...RM
