Chapter 1. Getting Started with Access > Access Database Objects

Access Database Objects

Access databases are made up of objects that store your data, allow you to enter and view data, ask questions about the data in your database, and present your data in an easily understood format. The four primary object types in an Access database are: tables, forms, queries, and reports.

Tables

Tables are the objects Access uses to store your data. Each table consists of fields, which store a specific piece of information (like a person's last name or the city they live in), and records. A record is a complete set of information about a specific entity.
