Hour 14. Power Table Techniques > Working with Field Properties

Working with Field Properties

After you have added fields to a table, you need to customize their properties. Field properties let you control how Access stores data as well as what data the user can enter into a field. The available properties differ depending on which field type you select. You can find a comprehensive list of properties under the Text data type (see Figure 14.1). The following sections describe the various field properties. Notice that the lower portion of the Design view window in Figure 14.1 is the Field Properties pane. This is where you can set properties for the fields in a table.
