Tables, views, and data types
Even though you can have multiple databases open simultaneously, closing those databases that
you don’t currently need frees up your computer’s resources to focus on the tasks that are most
important to you.
Now you will create a database without using a template.
To create a database from scratch:
1
Click File > New > Blank database. This item, and its neighbor, Blank Web database, are
listed under Available Templates, despite the fact that neither uses a template.
2
Type SCRATCH in the File Name text i eld, and then click Create.
Table 1 appears. It is the only object in the SCRATCH database, and
it awaits your input.
3
Click the Save icon ( ), or click File > Save, and save the table, either with its default
name of Table1 or with another name.
4
Click File > Close Database to close this database and leave Access running.

you will delve into various ways to view tables, and how to coni gure them to work with the
data they will contain.
Access 2010 has two ways to view tables: Datasheet view and Design view.
