Abstract

People generally think that a database has to be created in a special piece of software such as Microsoft Access. However, a database could be defined as any store of data that is organized in a way that makes easy entry and retrieval possible. This means files created in Notepad or Microsoft Excel can be used as databases—although when they are used as such, we tend to refer to them as “datastores” to make it clear that they simply store data, they don’t organize it.
