Access

Untold legions enjoy the power of Microsoft’s Access database. For you select speed freaks and efficiency experts, here are some hints that make Access even better.

The Express Route to Creating Tables

Creating a new Access table is about as much fun as watching C-SPAN reruns of federal hearings about the European corn borer. So here’s a nifty way around the problem: Recycle existing tables instead of creating new ones from scratch.

The process is pretty simple:

  1. Decide what table you want to make a copy of.

    Choose a table that has the same basic structure of the table that you want to create.

  2. Open the database that contains a table you want to copy, and then in the Database window, look under the Objects pane and click Tables.
