How do I know what fields to keep in or remove from my table?
To determine the fields you need in your database, decide the kinds of information you want to track in
your database and the types of reports and queries you want to generate to view your data. For best results,
use the suggested fields; you can always remove or hide fields that you do not use at a later time. (For help
removing or hiding fields from a table, see the sections “Delete a Field from a Table” and “Hide a Field in a
Table” later in this chapter.)
