Creating a Database Using a Wizard


You can use a wizard to create a database, or you can create a custom database from scratch. The Access database wizards help you create databases suited to your specific needs. Each wizard guides you through the process of selecting and creating fields, tables, queries, reports, and forms, which makes it easier to use the database. When you create a database, you need to assign a name and location to your database, and then you can create the tables, forms, and reports that make up the inner parts of the database.
