Creating a Table Using a Template


A table template is a predefined table with fields you can quickly insert and use in a database. Access provides several table templates (New!) including: Contacts, Tasks, Issues, Events, and Assets. You can use the Create tab to quickly insert a table template. After you insert a table template, you can change fields to meet your own needs, and then name and save the table in the database.
