Chapter 16. Database Techniques > Setting Up a Database

Setting Up a Database

Setting up a database is a lot like setting up a list, and you can use the List Manager if you prefer. The following instructions don't rely on the List Manager. See Chapter 10, Working with Lists, for more information about using the List Manager.

To create a database in Excel:

1.
In either a new or existing worksheet, enter the field names at the tops of a group of adjacent columns (Figure 16.3).

Figure 16.3. Set up your field names.


2.
Enter the data into rows below the field names (Figure 16.4).

Figure 16.4. Enter records (your data).
