Building a New Table

There are several ways to add a new table to an Access 97 database: using a wizard to help you with the design process, designing the table from scratch, building the table from a spreadsheet-like format, importing the table from another source, and linking to an external table. The first three methods are discussed in this chapter; the other two, importing and linking, are covered extensively throughout this book.

Regardless of which method you choose, start by selecting the Table tab of the Database window, then clicking the New button. (See Figure 3.1.) This opens the New Table dialog box, shown in Figure 3.2, which allows you to choose the method you want to use to build your table.
