Steps 3: Setting Data Types
After entering the field name, tell access what data they hold by choosing a data type. Here are the data type steps:
1. Click in the Data Type column next to the New field.
2. Select the Data Type from the list.
3. Enter a field size on the Field Size Property row in the field properties section of table design. Not every data type needs a field size, but most do.
4. Likewise do step 2 and 3 for each filed in the table.
5. At last Save the table.
Once the table is configured make sure to save it. In any case, you will be prompted to save it when you try to switch to Datasheet View or close the table.
