When you design a database table, you select a data type for each of the fields in that table, a process that helps ensure more accurate data entry.
In addition, those objects must adhere to a set of design principles or the database will either work poorly or fail altogether.
In turn, those design principles affect how you enter data.
Remember these facts about database objects and design as you proceed.
Attachments provide a faster, easier, and more flexible way to view data from other programs.
See the Attachment entry, later in this table, for more information.
