||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.
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

For example, a hockey team roster listing the names and
positions of the players could be called a recordset: it
consists of a subset of all the possible information about the
players, including goals, assists, penalty minutes, and so on.
