How to Create a Simple Table

As you work with Access, you’ll notice that there is usually more than one way to do things. The following are the three ways in which you can create a new table in Access:

  • Start typing data into a blank table— Access will create the fields in the table for you. If you’re used to working with Microsoft Excel, this method might be the most comfortable one for you.

  • Use the Table Wizard— It guides you through the steps of building some common table types.

  • Work directly in table design view— You specify the details of each field yourself. This is the most powerful and flexible way to design a new table.
