The Base of Relational Database Management System is a database object called table. Each database consists of one or more tables, which store the database’s data/information. Each table has its own unique name and consists of columns and rows.
The database table columns (called also table fields) have their own unique names and have a pre-defined data types. Table columns can have many attributes defining the column functionality (the column is a primary key, there is an index defined on the column, the column has certain default value, etc.).
While table columns describe the data types, the table rows contain the actual data for the columns.
Here is an example of a simple database table, containing Address data. The first row, listed in bold, contains the names of the table columns:
Database: Adventure Works
Query : select * from Person.Address
