Lesson 2. Working with Databases > Adding a Database to Your Bookmarks

Adding a Database to Your Bookmarks

Opening any database that you have opened before is a simple matter of clicking its bookmark. But what do you do if you want to open a database for which you don't have a bookmark? In that case you must use the menu commands:

  1. Choose File, Database, Open from the menu.

  2. In the Open Database dialog box (see Figure 2.5), specify the computer on which the database is stored by selecting Local or the name of a server from the Server drop-down list.

  3. From the Database list box, select the name of the database. If you don't see the name of the database on the list, click Browse and locate the database file.

  4. If you aren't sure which database you need, click About to see the About This Database document.

  5. To open the database, click Open. The database opens to the About This Database document. Press Esc to continue. After you've opened the database, point to the task button and drag it to a bookmark page to create a bookmark for the database. Click on the bookmark page to release it.

  6. To add a bookmark for the selected database, click Bookmark. When you choose Bookmark, the dialog box stays open so that you can select other databases and add them to your bookmarks. Click Cancel to close the dialog box. The new bookmark shows up on the Databases bookmark page.
