Lesson 1: Make a copy of the sample database

This tutorial focuses on the sample database. The sample database represents a small company that makes a limited range of sports clothing. It contains internal information about the company (employees, departments, and financial data), as well as product information (products) and sales information (sales orders, customers, and contacts). All information in the sample database is fictional. See About the sample database.

Before you begin, make a copy of the sample database so that you can restore it after you have made changes.

To copy the sample database

  1. Create a directory to hold the copy of the sample database you will use in this tutorial, for example c:\demodb.

  2. Copy the sample database from samples-dir\demo.db to c:\demodb.

    For information about samples-dir, see Samples directory.
