About Database Tables
Database tables will most likely be the area you'll become most familiar with after working with databases for a while. Now, before we go ahead and start adding tables to our new database, let's have a look at what a database table actually is.
What is a Table?
In relational database terms, a table is responsible for storing data in the database. Database tables consist of rows and columns.
Most relational databases contain many tables.
For example, a database might have a Customers table, a Products table, an Orders table, and many more. In fact, it's not uncommon for a corporate database to contain hundreds of tables.
