Chapter 2. Creating a New Database > Checking the Work of a Wizard

Checking the Work of a Wizard

Using a wizard to create a database is quick and painless, but just what do you end up with? The Database Wizard creates a database application, complete with a switchboard, several tables, and some other objects. In many cases, all you have to do to have a working database application is add the data. If the wizard’s work doesn’t quite suit your needs, you can modify any of the database objects or use another type of wizard to add more objects.


For example, if you tell the Database Wizard to create a contact management database, it creates three tables. It doesn’t create any queries for this type of database, but it does for some of the other types. It creates forms that you can use to enter or view data, and two reports that you can use to list contacts or summarize the calls made or received during the week. Finally, it creates a switchboard so that users can quickly access the parts of the database needed to perform specific tasks.
