To determine what fields you
need in your database, do a little
pre-planning. Decide what kinds
of information you want to track in
your database and what sorts of
reports and queries you want to
generate to view your data. For best
results, use the suggested fields; you
can always remove fields that you
do not use at a later time.
What kinds of templates can I
find to use for a database?
Microsoft offers all kinds of
templates in a variety of categories.
For example, the Business category
includes templates for creating
contact lists, assets, marketing
projects, and events. The Education
category includes templates for
creating student and faculty
database lists. You can also log
onto the Office Web site to find
new featured templates you can download.
