Exploring the Properties of Tables and Fields

Before you add a table to a database that you've created or to one of the sample databases supplied with Access, you need to know the terms and conventions that Access uses to describe the structure of a table and the fields that contain the table's data items. With Access, you specify property values for tables and fields.

Properties of Jet tables apply to the table as a whole. You enter properties of tables in text boxes of the Table Properties window (see Figure 5.3), which you display by clicking the toolbar's Properties button in Table Design view. Setting table property values is optional unless you have a specific reason to override the default values.
