Part 2. Creating Databases and Tables > Creating a New Blank Database

Creating a New Blank Database

If the New File Task pane is not displayed, open the File menu and choose New.

In the New area of the New File Task pane, click the Blank database link.

INTRODUCTION

If none of Access 2003s templates suits your needs, you can create a blank database from scratch, which you can then populate with your own set of tables, forms, queries, and reports.


The File New Database dialog box opens. Navigate to the folder in which you want to store the new database.

Type a descriptive name for the new database in the File name field.

Click the Create button.

Access creates a new database and displays the database window. You create the objects for this new database, such as tables (covered later in this part) and forms, by hand.
