Designing Your Own Database


Access 2010
Now that you know how to use and modify existing databases, you might be interested in designing your own. Database design can be very complicated-- so complicated, in fact, that people take extensive courses just to learn how to plan databases. For that reason, we haven't focused on creating a database from scratch in this course. However, we can help you get started.
In this lesson, you will learn how to create a database from an existing template. You will also learn about other resources you can use to learn database design.

Creating a Database from a Template

Before deciding to build your own database, you may want to look at the templates included in Access to see if any of them match your needs. When you select a template, Access creates a new database based on that template. Once it's created, you can fill the database with your own information, or modify it to suit your needs.

To Create a Database from a Template:

  1. Select the File tab. This will take you to Backstage View.
