SQL Server 2000 Administration in 15 Minutes a Week: Table Basics (Part 1) - Page 5

By Michael Aubert

Once you have added all the columns you can click the save icon (left most, looks like a disk) on the toolbar and you will be prompted to enter a name for this table:

Click to Enlarge

Enter a name and click OK. To close the New Table screen click the lower, inner, X at the upper right. You can also use the "Window" menu to switch between windows or arrange them.

After refreshing the Tables list (F5) the table we just created appears in SQL Server Enterprise Manager:

You can always go back and edit a table by right clicking it in Enterprise Manager and selecting "Design Table":

One last thing, using enterprise manager is not the only way to create a table -- you can also use the CREATE TABLE statement. For more information, see CREATE TABLE and ALTER TABLE in the SQL Server books online.

Well that about wraps it up for this week. Next week we are going to continue to talk about creating tables -- more specifically, we will look at additional table properties, creating relationships, and creating check constraints. As always...If you have any technical questions please post them on the SQL message board. Please send any non-technical questions, comments, and feedback to my email. I hope you are finding this series to be a useful one, and I'm looking forward to your feedback.
