Chapter 2. Creating a New Database > Creating Tables the Simple Way

Creating Tables the Simple Way

In addition to the standard information—such as names, addresses, and phone numbers—the company might want to track these other kinds of information:

  • Customer order and account status

  • Supplier contact, current order status, and discounts
