Datasheet View

A database term.

Applications such as Access allow you to view the contents of a table. When opened, you will see something similar to a spreadsheet, with columns of data with the field names identifying each column, whilst each row is a single record within the table. This is called the datasheet view.

The alternative is 'design view' where you see the structure of the table rather than the contents

Challenge see if you can find out one extra fact on this topic that we haven't already told you
