You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
The aim of this exercise is to create a table to hold the countries in which films can be made. In an Access database, create a new table:
Create this table using the notes below.
The table should have two fields:
- an integer field called CountryId to hold the country number; and
- a text field called CountryName to hold the country name.
You should make the integer field the primary key.
Now append all of the records from the Excel workbook Countries.xlsx in the folder shown above into your table:
What your final table should look like - apologies for the Western slant to the data!
Close this table down.
