    So, lets create a Table, select Table from the Database area, and in the Tasks panel select “Use Wizard to Create Table... The Table Wizard will appear. First of all you need to select a Category for this example I'll select Personal and from the Sample tables Plants and from the Available fields I'll add CommonName, Genus, Species and DatePlanted.
