Access Design View

Name 
Text(Default) Text or combinations of text and numbers, as well as numbers that don't require calculations, such as phone numbers. Up to 255 characters or the length set by the FieldSize property, whichever is less. Microsoft Access does not reserve space for unused portions of a text field.
MemoLengthy text or combinations of text and numbers. Up to 65,535 characters. (If the Memo field is manipulated through DAO and only text and numbers [not binary data] will be stored in it, then the size of the Memo field is limited by the size of the database.)
NumberNumeric data used in mathematical calculations. For more information on how to set the specific Number type, see the FieldSize property topic. 1, 2, 4, or 8 bytes (16 bytes if the FieldSize property is set to Replication ID).
Date/Time 
CurrencyCurrency values and numeric data used in mathematical calculations involving data with one to four decimal places. Accurate to 15 digits on the left side of the decimal separator and to 4 digits on the right side. 8 bytes.
AutoNumberA unique sequential (incremented by 1) number or random number assigned by Microsoft Access whenever a new record is added to a table. AutoNumber fields can't be updated. For more information, see the NewValues property topic. 4 bytes (16 bytes if the FieldSize property is set to Replication ID). Used for indexing records in a table. These are determined by the system and are not repeated.
Yes/NoYes and No values and fields that contain only one of two values (Yes/No, True/False, or On/Off). 1 bit.
OLE ObjectAn object (such as a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, a Microsoft Word document, graphics, sounds, or other binary data) linked to or embedded in a Microsoft Access table. Up to 1 gigabyte (limited by available disk space)
HyperlinkText or combinations of text and numbers stored as text and used as a hyperlink address. A hyperlink address can have up to three parts. Each part of the three parts of a Hyperlink data type can contain up to 2048 characters: text to display, the text that appears in a field or control. address, the path to a file (UNC path) or page (URL). subaddress, a location within the file or page. screentip, the text displayed as a tooltip. The easiest way to insert a hyperlink address in a field or control is to click Hyperlink on the Insert menu Location links to a file, web address or other location The hyperlink is stored as a string but when clicked will redirect you to the address referenced by the hyperlink.
Attachment 
Lookup WizardCreates a field that allows you to choose a value from another table or from a list of values by using a list box or combo box. Clicking this option starts the Lookup Wizard, which creates a Lookup field. After you complete the wizard, Microsoft Access sets the data type based on the values selected in the wizard. The same size as the primary key field used to perform the lookup, typically 4 bytes.
