You can refer to the following definitions to understand these terms.

  • Record: Record is a collection of values or fields of a specific entity. Eg. An employee, Salary account, etc.
  • Field: A field refers to an area within a record which is reserved for a specific piece of data. Eg. Employee ID.
  • Table: Table is the collection of records of specific types. E.g. Employee table is a collection of record related to all the employees.
