Designing Database Tables

First, there will be two tables added to your database: Persons and Phones. These are exactly the same tables as described in chapter Database and Spreadsheet. A layout for Persons can be found in section Data integrity and validity in that chapter.

  1. Select Table from the toolbar. You can also use Create object: table in the context menu of the Tables item in the Project Navigator.
  2. The Table Designer window will appear. Looking at the window's tab you will see that Kexi gives a generic name like Table1 for the new table. The table design is not yet saved, you will be able to assign a more suitable name later. Also, the table name is not yet visible in the Project Navigator.
