Hour 8. Creating Tables > Selecting the Appropriate Field Type for Data

Selecting the Appropriate Field Type for Data

The data type you select for each field can greatly affect the performance and functionality of an application. Several factors can influence your choice of data type for each field in a table:

  • The type of data that's stored in the field

  • Whether the field's contents need to be included in calculations

  • Whether you need to sort the data in the field

  • The way you want to sort the data in the field

  • How important storage space is to you
