Lesson 11. Using Databases > Understanding Databases

Understanding Databases

In addition to using Notes for mailing messages to your co- workers, you can use Notes to share and access documents of various types. You might want to access your company's handbook, a colleague's sales reports, information on a new client or service, advertising letters, or any other important data you may need in order to complete your work.

A Notes database is not the same as what you would typically consider a database. You're probably used to the type of database you create with Access, Approach, or Q&A, in which you use fields to define such information as names, addresses, products, numbers, and prices. In Notes, however, related documents are stored in databases. The documents in a database can contain text, graphics, pictures, and other types of data. One Notes database you're already familiar with is your mailbox—a collection of documents you've received and sent.
