Understanding Database Technologies

A database is a collection of related data and consists of types of data, called fields, and the data itself, frequently referred to as records. You will also often see people refer to a database field as a column and the data itself as a row. That's because most databases can display data in a table, which is a collection of columns, one for each database field, and rows, one for each record.

An example might be a database table called Addresses. In that table, you might have a column called LastName, a column called FirstName, a column called Address1, and so on. You would then have one row for each person in your Addresses table.
