Chapter 2. Creating a New Database > Creating a Blank Database

Creating a Blank Database

Creating a blank database is very straightforward. As mentioned previously, you are just creating the container file that holds all the objects that actually make up the database. To create a blank database, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Access window (click Start, Programs, Access).

  2. Select Blank Database in the task pane or click the New button on the Database toolbar. The File New Database dialog box appears (see Figure 2.1).

    Figure 2.1. Provide a location and a name for the new database file.

  3. Use the Save In drop-down box to locate the folder in which you want to save the new database. Type a name for the new file into the File Name text box.

  4. When you are ready to create the database file, click Create. The new database window appears in the Access workspace (see Figure 2.2).
