Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a table and setting data types, part of Office 365: Access Essential Training.
- When creating a place for our data to live,…we will define the columns or fields…that will house the data.…Remember that in a properly normalized data table,…the fields will represent the smallest piece…of information possible.…So instead of a single name field,…we'll want to instead break it out into a first name field,…and a last name field,…and even add a middle name, suffix, prefix fields as needed.…Let's go ahead and create a table to hold information…about the Landon Hotel's guests.…There's a couple of ways to create a new table in Access,…I'm going to go up to the Create tab here,…and then come down to the Tables group here.…
Now the last option, SharePoint Lists,…will create a new table on a SharePoint server.…In this case, we want to create a table here…in our local database,…so we can choose from the other two options.…We can either create a table in the datasheet view,…which is this first option,…or create a table with the design view,…we could use this button here.…Let's go ahead and press the first one…
