A group of similar rows and records is known as a table.

What is the table?

A table is a collection of related data held in the table format within the database. It consists of rows and columns;

The table in the relational database:

In a relational database, a table is a set of data elements using a model of vertical columns and horizontal rows. The cell is the unit where a row and column intersect. A table has a specified number of columns but has any number of rows.

The table is another term used for relation. Although there is a difference in that a table is usually a multiset of rows where a relation is a set and does not allow the duplicates. Tables generally have an association with rows metadata such as constraints on the table or on the values within the particular column.

The data in the table does not require to store the data physically in the database. Views also function as relational tables, but their data can be calculated at any query time.

Computational statistics:

For computational statistics, a data frame or data table is a data type that supports the table abstraction. Conceptually, it is the list of the records all containing the same fields or columns.
