Databases

A Database is a collection of records, that can be sorted, removed, searched etc.

A Database allows you to store multiple pieces of information in one file, instead of using several files for each piece of data. Normally a Database contains many fields of data. You can think of a field as a place in which you can hold information, itís a lot like a variable but you load information from a file and only that variable can get that piece of information.
