Creating new tables
A table is a spreadsheet-like presentation of project data organized into vertical columns
and horizontal rows. Each column represents one of the many fields in Project, and each
row represents a single task or resource (or, in usage views, an assignment). The intersection
of a column and a row can be called a cell (if you’re oriented toward spreadsheets) or a field
(if you think in database terms).
Project includes several tables that can be applied in views. You’ve already used some of
these tables, such as the Entry and Summary tables. Chances are that most of the time,
Project’s built-in tables will contain the fields that you want. However, you can modify any
predeined table, or you can create a new table that contains only the data you want.
The scenario: At Lucerne Publishing, you continue your focus on editorial tasks in the new
children’s book plan. To that end, you decide to create a custom table, and in that table
expose some descriptions of editorial work that have been added to a text field in the plan.
In this exercise, you create a custom table.
