You can enter large amounts of text and numeric data in this type of field.
Also, if the database designer sets the field to support rich text formatting, you can apply the types of formatting that you normally find in word processing programs, such as Office Word 2007.
For example, you can apply different fonts and font sizes to specific characters in your text, and make them bold or italic, and so on.
You can also add Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) tags to the data.
You can enter only currency values in this type of field.
Also, you do not have to manually enter a currency symbol.
See the Attachment entry, later in this table, for more information. Microsoft Office Access 2007 provides a number of tools for updating existing records, including datasheets, forms, queries, find-and-replace, and the new Data Collection feature.As you proceed, remember that updating data is not the same process as entering new data.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.For example, suppose you specify the Number data type for a field because you need to calculate sales figures.
