Definition Edit

A relational database is a

[d]atabase organization method that links files together as required. Relationships between files are created by comparing data such as account numbers and names. A relational system can take any two or more files and generate a new file from the records that meet the matching criteria. Routine queries often involve more than one data file; e.g., a customer file and an order file can be linked in order to ask a question that relates to information in both files, such as the names of the customers that purchased a particular product.[1]
