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. Using database terms, each of these related pieces of information is called a field: each hockey card ôrecord?has a name field.

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.
