Data record with several data fields

Such a classification system consists of several data fields, each of which contains the data for certain attributes. A distinction is made between logical and physical data records. Logical data records are collections of data whose data is logically related to each other. Physical data sets are small amounts of data that can be processed collectively by storage media

or computing units. A file consists of a series of data sets.

For example, the data set of an address file consists of the last name, first name, street, house number, postal code and city.
