Determine where to create the database.
When creating a database, you must decide which storage medium to use.
If you always work on the same computer and have no need to transport your database
to a different location, then your computer’s hard drive will suffi ce as a storage location. It is
a good idea, however, to save a backup copy of your database on a separate medium in case
the fi le becomes corrupted, or the computer’s hard drive fails.
If you plan to work on your database in various locations or on multiple computers, then
you can consider saving your projects on a portable medium, such as a USB fl ash drive or
CD. The projects in this topic are stored on a USB fl ash drive, which saves fi les quickly and
reliably and can be reused. CDs are easily portable and serve as good backups for the fi nal
versions of projects because they generally can save fi les only one time.
To Create a Database
Because you already know the tables and fi elds you want in the JSP Recruiters database, you would use the
Blank Database option rather than using a template. The following steps create a database, using the fi le name JSP
Recruiters, on a USB fl ash drive.

With a USB fl ash drive connected
to one of the computer’s USB ports,

new blank database (Figure 1–7).
