Add a Field to a Table
You can add fields to your table to include more information in your records. For example, you may
need to add a separate field to a Contacts table for mobile phone numbers. Alternatively, you may
need to add a field to a table that contains a catalog of products to track each product’s availability.
After you add a field, you can name it whatever you want. To name a field, double-click the field
label in Datasheet view, type a new name, and press the Enter key. Alternatively, you can change the
field name in Design view.
