Table Essentials

A table is the basic unit for storing and organizing information in an Access database. One database can contain any number of tables, as well as links to tables stored in other locations and other formats. Data within a table is arranged in a basic grid, with each row containing a single record and each column representing a field. In turn, tables directly or indirectly form the basis for all other objects within an Access database, including queries, forms, and reports. You can create tables for any type of data—employee lists, product inventories, suppliers and customers, contacts, and so on.
