  • Types of Databases
    • Flat file databases
      • All the data is organised into one table, which can be viewed by opening one data file
      • Can be created using all database programs and most spreadsheet programs
    • Relational Databases
      • Store the data in separate tables
      • All data is linked together by key fields
      • Linking tables together means that important information only needs to be stored once - reduces data redundancy
      • Quick and easy to update - information only needs to be changed in one table
