    Design
    Explanation
    Tables have two views: Datasheet view and Design view. In Datasheet view, the table is displayed as a grid with rows and columns, allowing users to enter and view data. Design view, on the other hand, provides a more detailed and structured view of the table's design. It allows users to define the table's structure, set field properties, and specify relationships with other tables. In Design view, users can add, modify, or delete fields, set primary keys, and define data types and validation rules.

    • D.

      Only allow numbers up to 20 to be entered in the field

    Correct Answer
    A. Allow up to 20 characters to be entered in a field
    Explanation
    Be aware that if you do not set the field length to an appropriate size when you set the table up and then try to reduce the field length at a later date, you may lose some of the data you have entered. i.e. if you have entered an address that has 30 characters and then change the field size to 20, you would lose the last 10 characters in the address. It is better to get the text field sizes set up correctly right at the start.
