Create a New Table
Access databases store all data in tables. A table is a list of information organized into columns and
rows that hold data. A table might list the names, addresses, phone numbers, company names,
titles, and e-mail addresses of your clients. Each row in a table is considered a record . You can use
columns to hold fields , which are the individual units of information contained within a record.
If you need to add a table to a database, you can easily do so. All table objects that you create
appear listed in the Navigation pane; simply double-click a table object to open it.
