Chapter 17. Building Tables in an Access... > Creating a Table in Design View

Creating a Table in Design View

Now that you have created a project file, let’s take a look at creating a table. The features that allow you to create tables by using wizards or by entering data in a desktop application (.mdb) do not exist in an Access project (.adp). The only method for creating tables (other than importing them from another source or using specific code to create them) is to create them in Design view.

Creating a new table is easy. Open the project file (ContactTracking.adp) connected to the new database (ContactTrackingSQL) that you created earlier. Make sure the Database window is visible, and select Tables on the Object bar. Click the New button on the Database window toolbar, and a blank table opens in Design view, as shown in Figure 17-11 on the next page.
