Sample text

Only text, number, date, time, and container fields could be found in the base tables of these other systems. Things such as scripts or layouts have nothing to do with table data in the relational model. For our purposes, let’s consider a FileMaker file to be more than a table, which it is. It includes one table and a potentially large number of views with their materialized fields. One thing we haven’t addressed yet is the notion of scripts. FileMaker scripts actually have their parallels in larger database systems; in some systems, scripts even live in tables as they do in FileMaker.

Let’s look at an example. ” Putting those 17 Chapter 1 The Relational Model Chapter 1 two values in separate fields would still give you the same meaning. Of course, we can break “Chicago” down into its constituent letters, but when we go that far, we lose meaning. So, when we say that an atomic value has no internal structure, we really mean that we can’t break the structure down any more without sacrificing meaning. You might say that domains contain the smallest possible units of meaning within a relation.

If we can’t do this, we can’t perform an operation on a specific tuple. If that’s the case, any operations we need to perform on only a specific tuple may affect innocent bystander tuples, thus compromising their integrity (destroying their meaning). For that reason, it is essential that we are able to construct some kind of predicate that can reference a specific tuple. For example, in an Invoice relation we might want to see a row where: Invoice ID = 37 This predicate will either be true or false for every tuple in the relation.
