    Granularity - Page? Record?

    Hi, I'm just trying to work of granularity hierarchies and i'm confused by what's being said.

    Db: database
    File: table
    Page: row
    Record: record

    How is a row/page and a record (that's a tuple, yes?) different?

    e.g.
    Db: myDatabase
    File: users
    Page: ???
    Record: bob, smith, 19, the road, the town

    in the concept and design stage, there is no such thing as a page

    only when you go off into the arcane world of database administration do pages matter
