Documenting a pre-existing filemaker solution


I'm taking over management of a filemaker database which has had a couple of different developers before me. It has grown organically over time, doesn't really have much in the way of documentation, and has, I'm fairly certain, the results of unfinished projects still laying around.

I'm looking for a good way to document what is currently there to make what can be trimmed more clear, and also hopefully make updating the documentation easy and maybe even automate it to some extent. A wiki style solution seems fairly ideal.

So far I've only been able to properly export the fields and scripts to XPS. Every other format I've tried has come out garbled. I've yet to find any sort of solution at all to listing scripts and fields used by each layout, other than the obvious painful manual check method.
