The Database Wizard creates a database file that contains information about a database.

Depending on the type of operation and the type of database, the Database Wizard consists of a varying number of steps.

  • If you create a new database file, the wizard contains two steps.

Database Selection

Creates a new database, opens a database file, or connects to an existing database.

Save and proceed

Specifies whether you want to register the database, open the database for editing, or insert a new table.

  • If you open the Database Wizard to create a database file for an existing database connection, there may be more steps to specify paths, authentication information, and more.

Set up text file connection

Set up LDAP connection

Set up dBASE connection

Set up JDBC connection

Set up Oracle database connection

MySQL settings

ODBC settings

Set up Spreadsheet connection


Clicking Cancel closes a dialog without saving any changes made.


View the selections in the dialog made in the previous step. The current settings remain unchanged. This button can only be activated from page two on.


Click the Next button, and the wizard uses the current dialog settings and proceeds to the next step. If you are on the last step, this button becomes Create.
