Creating a New Table

If none of the existing tables even come close to meeting your needs, you can create a completely new table. To do this, follow these steps:

1 Click View, Table and then click More Tables.

2 In the More Tables dialog box, select the Task or Resource option to create a task or resource table, respectively.

3 Click New.

The Table Definition dialog box appears with a default name in the Name box.

4 Enter a new descriptive name in the Name box.

5 If you want this table to appear in the View menu and View bar, select the Show In Menu check box.

6 Continue by adding the fields you want to appear in the table.

For information about how to add fields to a table, see "Modifying the Columns in a Table," earlier in this chapter on page 786.
