    My approach is

    1. Plan thoroughly on paper. Ensure normalised.
    2. Create tables and relationships
    3. Create forms adding queries / module procedures where appropriate
    4. Create reports for each form as you make them.

    All developers will stress the importance of step 1 being done before doing anything in Access
    Some developers do step 4 before 3.

    I agree with Colin/ridders52. Plan and model using pencil and paper.
    Identify what must be "outputted" from your application, that will identify most of what has to be stored in the database.
    Mock up some test data and scenarios and test you model (paper based) before getting too deep into physical database.
    Here is info on various aspects of database planning and design.

    Getting tables and relationships designed to support your business is critical to database.
    Good luck with your project.
