Creating a Database

You can create your own database in which to store documents for your personal use on your local drive, or for use on the network. As creator of the database, you can choose the document types that go into the database, and you can compose any or all of the documents in your database. To create a database, follow these steps:

  1. In your workspace, choose File,Database,New. The New Database dialog box appears (see Figure 16.1).

    Figure 16.1. Create your own databases and documents.

  2. In the Server drop-down list, choose the local drive or the network drive to which you want to save the database.

  3. In the Title text box, enter a name for the database. Notes automatically fills in the File Name text box as you enter the title.

  4. In the list at the bottom of the dialog box, choose a template on which to base your new database. (Table 16.1 describes the available templates.) Click the Template Server button to view templates the Notes administrator may have created for your use.

  5. Click OK. Notes creates an icon on the current workspace and opens the new database for you.
