Record

In Oracle, a record is one occurrence of data stored in all the fields of a block. A block may show only one row of information at a time, or it may display several rows of information at once, depending on its layout. A record is also referred to as a row or a transaction, since one record corresponds to one row of data in a database table or one database transaction.

 

 

Records

Includes paper and electronic documents, books, microforms, computer tapes, maps, video and sound recordings, and any other documentary materials, regardless of whether such items are in written form, in the form of computer data, or in any other form. Extra copies of documents retained only for reference convenience are not considered records.
