(Electronic Data Interchange) is a Pre-Internet form of e-commerce. Governed

by rules maintained by the United Nations, EDI set out to formalize
electronic commerce as a set of standardized message formats, by which businesses
would exchange documents such as purchase orders and
invoices with each other electronically. Until the advent of the Internet, EDI
messages had to be exchanged via dedicated Value-Added Networks (VANs).
This restricted its use to large corporations who had the clout to impose EDI
standardization on their supply chain partners. It is gradually being absorbed
(or, depending on your point of view, superceded by) XML-based equivalents.

* TCP and IP are communication protocols for the Internet. They were designed

10. Records and Fields

Records the building blocks of databases, records describe information


Database - Record - Field is unrealistic, at this time, to expect all information

sources to come directly to a computer
screen on demand.

Fields the building blocks of records; these are the sections of a record
where information is stored.

For example, your driver's license or ID card is a record about you with fields
describing your name, eye color, height, address, and so on.
Field names can vary, but in library databases author, title, subject, publisher,
and publication date are common.
