Because rows contain data from multiple columns, in databases, each table row may be considered a record. For example, a row (or record) from a Employee table may contain an employee's name, address, position, salary, and other information. When querying a database, the results are typically returned as an array of rows, which is similar to a group of records. Individual values can be accessed by selecting a specific column (or field) within a row.
NOTE: When displaying data in a table format, the top row is often called the table header. The cells in the row typically contain the name of each field.
