Building a New Table

There are several ways to add a new table to an Access 2003 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. This chapter discusses the process of designing a table from scratch; importing and linking are covered extensively throughout this book. Because the other two options are not appropriate for most business solutions, this book does not cover them.

Regardless of which method you choose, start by selecting the Tables icon from the list of objects in the Database window. Icons appear allowing you to create a table in Design view, create a table using a wizard, and create a table by entering data (see Figure 2.7).
