Chapter 2. Creating a New Database > Refining How Data is Displayed

Refining How Data is Displayed

When you use the Table Wizard to create tables and populate them with the fields you specify, it sets a variety of properties for each field. These properties determine what data can be entered in a field and how the data will look on the screen.


The field properties set by Access are a good starting place, and most of them are probably fine as they are. However, suppose some of the properties don’t meet your needs. You can change some of them without affecting the data stored in the table; others might affect the data, so it pays to be cautious about making drastic changes until you have some experience working with Access.
