The building block of a database is the record. A record
is a collection of related data treated as a single entity. For example,
a hockey trading card could be called a record: it brings together the
name, photograph, team, and statistics of one player.
An introduction to our web site
A collection of records that share the same fields is called a table
because this kind of information can easily be presented in table
format: each column represents a field and each row represents a record.
In fact, the word column is synonymous with the word field, and the word
row is synonymous with the word record.
