Phase 2: Populate the Database Table
Next in this process is populating the table with field names (column headings) and data. Here your process and mine will diverge slightly, so adapt the following steps to accommodate your own data:
- Enter column headings (field names) in the top row of the table. In Figure 2, I've entered the column headings Title, Length, Image, and Summary to accommodate a video library database.
Figure 2 Field names appear in the top row of the table.
- Populate the Spry Data Source table with information for your database, using a separate row for each item (see Figure 3).

- Before moving on, save your web page with the updated table. This will serve as your Spry Data Set.
