Hour 2. Tables Introduced > Viewing and Navigating Table Data

Viewing and Navigating Table Data

Tables are the basis of everything that you do in Access. Most of the data for a database resides in tables, so if you're creating an employee payroll database, the employee data will be stored in a table, your payroll codes might be stored in a table, and your past payroll records could be stored in a table. A table contains data about a specific topic or subject (for example, customers, orders, or employees). Tables are arranged in rows and columns, similarly to a spreadsheet. The columns represent the fields, and the rows represent the records (see Figure 2.1).
