About Indexes Manager

Use the Indexes Manager dialog box to create, edit, or delete indexes in the table. You can use an index to gain fast access to specific information in a database table. You should create an index on a table only if the data in the indexed columns will be queried frequently. Indexes take up disk space and slow the adding, deleting, and updating of rows. If your application updates data very frequently or if you have disk space constraints, you might want to limit the number of indexes.

You can easily move from Indexes to Relationships dialog box and vice versa by choosing the appropriate option from  the drop-down menu in the toolbar:

Options
