Data Types And Field Properties

Introduction to data types and
field properties

Every field in a table has properties. These properties define the field's characteristics and behavior. The most important property for a field is its data type. A field's data type determines what kind of data it can store. For example, a field whose data type is Text can store data that consists of either text or numerical characters, but a field whose data type is Number can store only numerical data.
