With a blank or standalone table, you can fully customize the structure of your table according to your specific needs. You can define your own columns, choose the appropriate data types, and organize the layout as you see fit.

To create a blank table

  1. Go to My Tables and select Create Table in the upper-left corner.

  1. Open Form in the upper-right corner.
  2. Select Edit Form from the menu.
