Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting additional field properties, part of Access 2016 Essential Training.
- There are a few other Field Properties…available in the Table Design View that are worth exploring,…and I'd like to take a look at them…inside of our Guest Table,…so I'll go over here in the Navigation Pane,…and I'll right-click on it and choose Design View.…Now the very first field here is called the GuestID.…The Data Type is this AutoNumber field,…and if I take a look at the Field Properties…down here on the bottom,…you'll see that it's set to a Long Integer value.…The Long Integer will only store whole numbers,…so no decimals here.…It'll also include a range from about…negative two billion to positive two billion,…so we have plenty of space to grow in this field size.…
