As a user, you need to create tables to store data in database. While creating the tables in database, you have to follow specify certain rules and constraints for columns that specify the kind of data to be stored.

You can create table by using the CREATE TABLE statement as well as GUI MODE as shown below:
CREATE TABLE statement
 Create table "tablename"
 "ColumnName1" "data type",
 "ColumnName2" "data type",
 "ColumnName3" "data type"
Create table EmplyoeeDetail
      Id char(4),
      Name varchar(20),
      City varchar(20),
      Age varchar(20)
