Using the Access Table
After the Access version of the table has been created, you can use it as you would
any other table. You can open the table in Datasheet view (Figure 1b on page AC 207).
You can make changes to the data. You can create queries or reports that use the data in
the table.
By clicking Design View on the table’s shortcut menu, you can view the table’s
structure and make any necessary changes to the structure. The changes may include
changing fi eld sizes and types (for those that may not be correct), creating indexes, specifying
the primary key, or adding additional fi elds. If you have imported multiple tables that are to be
related, you will need to relate the tables. To accomplish any of these tasks, use the same steps
you used in Chapter 3.
