A Quick Overview of a Database
The most commonly used tool for managing critical data is the database. A Database is a collection of text and numerical data stored in a list created and managed by an application called a Data Base Management System or DBMS. The list is presented as a table that can be broken down into columns and rows. A column is the vertical grouping of entities, while the horizontal grouping is known as a row. When one or more columns are used in a table to identify a specific row, then that group of columns is called a key. All the information entered into a database is called a record. This information composes a variable called a field.
