Flat File Relational Database 1

A website that displays a small amount of text information could be a candidate for a flat-file relational database (FFRD).Like a traditional database, FFRD data is stored in tables with rows and columns. The tables use primary and foreign keys and are linked through one-to-one, one-to-many, and many-to-many relationships. Records are character-delimited text files.

The following example shows an application for organizing a company's customers, products and orders.
