How to Create a Table in Design View in Access 2016
Design View can make some things easier to do than Datasheet View when creating a table.
Here's how to create a table in Design View.
Once the table has been configured, be 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.
You can switch between Design View and Datasheet View at any time by using the little Datasheet View/Design View icons at the botton right of the screen, or the View icon in the left part of the Ribbon (from the Design tab).
Design View vs Datasheet View
You can create a table in either Datasheet View or Design View. Generally, you can do most things in both views. However, there are some things you can do in Design View that you can't in Datasheet View.
But there are some things that are just easier to do in Design View. For example, you can see all fields' data types in one screen, without having to click on each field.
The Design View interface can be easier to adjust field properties too.
