1 Database Models 1 An unstructured file as a uni,ue structure and

contains different !inds of data A structured file uses a uniform format to store data T e underlying structure of a database is referred to as a database model

Chapter 11: Databases

1 Database Models 1 T e simplest model for storing data is a flat file t

at consists of a single# t"o-dimensional table of data elements

1 Database Models 1 A record is a collection of data fields

T e template for a record is referred to as a record type A record t at contains data is referred to as a record occurrence

related tables
