Editing and Modifying a Database
After you create a database from scratch or from a template, you need to
modify it by giving each field a descriptive name, defining the size of each
field, or adding and deleting a field.
Naming a field
If you create a database from scratch, Access displays generic field names
such as Field1. If you create a database from a template, you’ll see the
descriptive field names, but you may still want to rename the fields to
something else.
To rename a field, follow these steps:
1. In the All Tables pane on the left of the screen, double-click the table
that contains the fields you want to rename.
Access displays the Datasheet view of your database.
