The text data type stores text, including numbers - also known as a string. A text column is a good choice if you want to store data like names, addresses, or simple custom data. It is a popular data type and one you are more than likely going to use.
The process for creating a text column takes a few seconds.
- First, click the Create New Column button
- Give your text column a name - we used Name in the video above.
- Due to the popularity of the text data type, it is shown by default; so there's no need to change it.
- Click Save Column
- Add data to your new column by adding rows.
