Hour 8. Creating Tables > Building a New Table

Building a New Table

There are several ways to add a new table to an Access 2003 database: You can use a wizard to help you with the design process, design the table from scratch, build the table from a datasheet (a spreadsheet-like format), import the table from another source, or link to an external table. This hour discusses the processes of building a table from a datasheet and designing a table from scratch; Hour 6, “Using Wizards to Create a Database,” covers the process of using a wizard to help with the design process, and Hour 18, “Sharing Data with Other Applications,” covers the processes of importing and linking.

Regardless of which method you choose, you should start building a new table by selecting the Tables icon from the list of objects in the Database window. The icons that appear allow you to create a table in Design view, create a table using a wizard, and create a table by entering data (see Figure 8.1).
