Design View

A database term.

'Design view' where you see the structure of the table rather than the contents. It shows the field names and their datatype. From design view you can add and delete fields within the table, although you have to be careful with deleting the primary key in the table as that would cause problem with data integrity.

The alternative is 'datasheet view'. Which is also described in this glossary
