D. Obtaining or Creating the Sample Database > D.1. Creating the Database

Creating the Database

The first step is to create the database itself by doing the following:

  1. Start Microsoft Access.

  2. When the Microsoft Access dialog box appears over the main Microsoft Access window, as shown in Figure D-1, select the Blank Database button, and Click OK. Access opens the File New Database dialog box.

  3. Navigate to the directory in which you’d like to save the database file. If the directory doesn’t exist, you can create it by clicking on the Create New Folder button (the third button from the left on the toolbar); you should then navigate to the newly created directory. In the File name text box, type in library.mdb. Then click the Create button.
