Creating a Database
Before you sit down at your computer with Access running, you should plan and design your database on paper. Analyze all paper forms and reports that use the data you will include in the database. Make a list of all the major tasks you need to use the data for. Organize the tasks into groups, such as grouping all reports needed. Then you are ready to work with the data.
