Creating New Databases in Access 2010: Overview
A new database is a container that will hold all of the tables, form, reports, queries, macros, and modules that you create. In Access 2010, you can create a new database by clicking the “File” tab in the Ribbon. Then click the “new” command. Then select the “Blank database” choice in the “Available Templates” section. In Access 2007, you can create a new blank database by simply clicking the “Blank Database” button In the “New Blank Database” section of the “Getting Started with Microsoft Access” welcome screen. In the “Blank Database” pane that appears at the right side of the screen, you can enter a name for the database into the “File Name:” text box. To change the default folder where you save the database file, click the small folder button at the right end of the “File Name:” text box to launch the “File New Database” dialog box. Use this dialog box to give the new database file a name and also select where you want to save the file. When you are ready, click the “OK” button to close the dialog box. Then click the “Create” button to create the new database file. The new blank database then appears in the main Access interface.
