Thanks for the suggestion that I post the name of the tool I am using.  Thanks also for the instruction regarding how to add fields once the initial ones have been added.

I actually liked the initial view for adding fields via this initial view as opposed to this view

AWWW  this is so cool!  I get it now.  Thank you!

I don't think you can get back to the initial screen in phpMyAdmin unless you just recreate the table. The logic may be that you have the table pretty much finished the 1st go round.
