Microsoft provides quite a few prebuilt database templates to assist you in jumpstarting your database development process. In this tutorial, we'll walk through the process of creating an Access database using these templates.
If you haven't already selected a template, take a few minutes to visit our Microsoft Access Database Templates collection and locate a template appropriate for your task.
This tutorial was designed using Microsoft Access 2007 but the steps will be similar for those using earlier versions of Access. If you're using a later version of Access, you may wish to read Creating an Access 2010 Database from a Template or Creating an Access 2013 Database From a Template.
