Create a Database Based on a Template
Create a Database Based on a Template
You can build web apps — a new kind of database designed with Access and published online —
or desktop databases based on any of the predefined Access templates. For example, you can
create databases to track contact lists, assets, and task management. You can also search Office.com
to find new, featured templates. This topic focuses on building desktop databases.
When you create a new database using a template, the database includes pre-built tables and forms,
which you populate with your own data. You control the structure of your database by modifying or
eliminating preset tables and fields and adding database content such as tables, forms, and reports.
