Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a new table from scratch, part of Creating Access Web Apps in SharePoint 2013.
- Our final choice is to create a table from scratch…because the table we want doesn't exist in the templates.…We don't have any existing data…that would help us out with that,…and so we're going to add a new blank table.…If you do a lot of development in Access,…you're going to be very comfortable doing this…because here we are being prompted…for field names and for data types.…So if I wanted to add a series of payment types,…for example, I'm gonna just say that we're going to have…a CardType and that will be Short Text.…
You can use your arrow keys or your mouse…to move around in here.…That will actually be Type of credit card.…Then we'll have ActiveDate,…the date we start accepting that CardType.…So let's take a look at what our data types are.…We have a number of them.…We're just gonna choose Date/Time.…It's going to give me a display of a Short Date,…and that's fine.…Again I can add an optional description,…Date we began accepting this card type.…Then an InactiveDate, Date/Time again.…
I can just hit the letter D to navigate that list…
