How to: Create Tables (Visual Database Tools)

Using Table Designer, you can create a new table, name it, and add it to an existing database.


If you are connected to a SQL Azure database, the new table option launches a create table template script. Edit the parameters, then run the script to create a new table. For more information, see SQL Azure Overview.
