Let's add an empty database that will be used to build our ERP.

Let's create the tables that contain the data and that will give a purpose to our management system. In this case we will do a very simple order management.

4 The sections

Let's begin to enter our data by creating sections of the program to be able to access out tables.

5 Registry and Documents

Let's give our tables a job by telling them if they will be normal personal data or collect data from multiple sources.

6 Let's connect the tables

Let's create the fields that will allow us to read the data from one table and write it inside another.

7 Let's arrange the fields

Let's rearrange our fields on the data form to make them more functional.

8 Let's insert the calculations

Let's teach management how to automatically perform calculations on field values.
