Every database has several fields, records, and files.

A database 'field' refers to a set of values arranged in a table and has the same data type.

A 'field' is also known as a column or attribute.

Example: candy bars.

On our Excel database, we have a columns set up for type, number of boxes and price.

Each column has 'fields' for data entry.

                           Candy Bar            Number of Stock         Price

These are 'fields':          Snickers                     10                          2.19 each
