Understanding Records


The EnterpriseOne system uses databases to store information. The system stores information in small units called records. Each record contains one or more items of information.


In this topic, you will review records in EnterpriseOne.

Step Action
In EnterpriseOne, databases store information in small units called records.

For example, the database stores supplier, company, customer, and employee records.

Step Action
For example, Dominique Abbot is an item of information in the Address Book system.

When you access information about Dominique Abbot, the system also displays additional information such as phone number, address, and title.

Step Action
The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system stores this information in databases so that it can be easily organized, managed, and accessed.

Step Action
The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system uses two types of records: Primary records and secondary records.

Primary records contain information such as a customer’s name and address and must be entered into the system before secondary records.

Secondary records contain additional information related to the primary record. For example, you can store phone numbers as a secondary record.

Step Action
EnterpriseOne provides you with forms to search and display records from the database. You can also use these forms to enter or update records in the database.

For example, you can use the Work With Addresses form to search and display records through a grid.

You have reviewed records in EnterpriseOne.

End of Procedure.
