Tables Are the Center of the Access Universe

I want to start by re-emphasizing the primacy of tables, not just relative to forms, but to all other Access objects as well. The Database window does not make the essential role of tables clear; the positioning of the buttons makes it seem that tables are merely first among equals (see Figure 6.1). A graphic representation of Access objects that conveyed their relative significance would look more like the solar system. The tables are at the center of the universe; they are, so to speak, the sun. All other objects are planets that merely revolve around tables.

Figure 6.1. In the Database window, tables appear merely as the first of equals rather than as the cornerstones of your database that they truly are.
