If your Dictionary is currently empty, you should only see three folders in the DCT Explorer.


Right-click on the Tables folder, and select Add Table from the popup menu.

The New Table Properties dialog appears.


On the General tab, type the Name, the Prefix, and choose the Database Driver for your data file.


Press OK to close the dialog.

Your file (table) is added to the dictionary. You may, of course, specify additional table properties if you want. You may add more tables by repeating the above steps.

You can also add a new table from the DCT Explorer toolbar if any existing table is selected and you press the Add button
