hold information much like a filing cabinet. This information is stored and then can be accessed at a later time. It can be sorted, changed or removed as needed. By using a database
companies can store information about products, client information, mailing lists and almost anything you can think of can be placed in a database so it can be retrieved
through your website. Combining databases with scripting languages such as ASP allows for things such as online catalogues so your customers can
shop right online.
