Clarification on Database tables and rows (and columns perhaps)?

So how does tables and rows work? like when Kenneth Love mentioned adding another row when you save? are they like the spreadsheet with rows and columns? I can't seem to get the picture... any help is greatly appreciated... thanks so much

Hi there,

Yes, a row is a single record containing the information held within that table. So, for a table of Person, that could be name, address, date of birth etc. One row is one individual. The columns are the lists of one piece of info, e.g. all the dates of birth, or surnames; whatever.

The table as a whole is a list of records/rows of multiple people containing multiple bits of information about each person.

I hope that makes sense ... my painkiller dose is high today so I may be talking nonsense!!
