- To begin, open Microsoft Access. The instructions and images in this article are for Microsoft Access 2007. If you're using a different version of Access, they may vary slightly.
- Next, you'll need to create a blank database to use as your starting point. Click "Blank Database" on the Getting Started with Microsoft Office Access screen to begin this process, as shown in the figure below.
- In the next step, the right pane of the Getting Started window will change to match the image above. Give your database a name by typing it into the text box and click the Create button to begin building your database.
- Access will now present you with a spreadsheet-style interface, shown in the image above, that helps you create your database tables.
- The first spreadsheet will help you create your first table. As you can see in the image above, Access begins by creating an Auto Number field named ID that you can use as your primary key. To create additional fields, simply double-click on the top cell in a column (the row with a darker blue shade) and type the name of the field into that cell. When you've finished typing in the field name, press Enter. You can then use the Data Type and Format controls in the Ribbon to customise the field.
- Continue adding fields in this same manner until you've created your entire table. Once you've finished building the table, click the Save icon on the Quick Access toolbar. Access will then ask you to provide a name for your table. You can also create additional tables by selecting the Table icon in the Create tab of the Access Ribbon.
