Once you've created a swatch table, it will look like this:

You can then add colors to it using the Color Specs dialogue box or dragging and dropping a color from another swatch table or the Color Mixer.

If you add colors to a new swatch table and try to close the table or application without saving it, you will be prompted to save the table to a file.
