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.

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.

A subset of data extracted from one or more tables is called a recordset (or a DataSet in ASP.NET). A recordset is also a table because itís a collection of records that share the same columns.
