The database design environment
We will begin by creating a database. Since we are now familiarized with the telephone guide, we will "modernize" it with Access.
First, we need to run the program.
We click on Start, All programs, then, on Microsoft Access.
A window like this will pop up:
and we select the option "New Blank Database"
A window called "Blank Database" will appear. We will call this new database "Telephone Guide". We will write this in the File Name field. Then, we click on 'Create'.
From this point, we begin creating our first database.
