Change Table Views
You can view your table data using two different view modes: Datasheet view and Design view. In
Datasheet view, the table appears as an ordinary grid of intersecting columns and rows where you
can enter data. In Design view, you can view the skeletal structure of your fields and their properties
and modify the design of the table.
In either view, you can add fields by typing new field names in the Field Name column, or change
the field names. In Design view, you can also change the type of data allowed within a field, such as
text or number data.
