Encyclopedia > Database record

In computer science, a database record is a description of a single item as stored in a database. In a relational database each row of each table is a database record.

For instance, in a billiards database, one record in the score table is a single score and has fields (a.k.a. columns) for the two players, the date, who won, and the number of balls remaining on the table, while one record in the player table contains one player's name, address, and playing skill.

In relational databases these are also called tuples, a term inherited from relational algebra.
