Chapter 2. Creating a New Database > Choosing How to Create Your Database

Choosing How to Create Your Database

Before you can create your database tables and actually enter data, you must create a database file. The database is really just a container file that holds all the database objects, such as the tables, forms, and reports. You also have two options for creating a new database: You can create a blank database from scratch or create a new database based on a database template.

Creating a new database based on a template means that you take advantage of the Database Wizard, which not only creates your new database file but also helps you quickly create tables, forms, and other objects for the database.
