table:  A database is organized into tables that contain records.  Tables cover different topics related to the same common theme.  The theme and its extent of development determine the number of tables that comprise the database.  For example, the Crow Butte soil polygon database contains twelve tables, in such areas as yield, crop potential, and statistical information.  (See also: database object, field, record.)
