DBA & Data:
Master Table
 
Posted 12 years ago on 6/24/2007
Take Away: A master table in a multitable relationship is the primary table. For every record in the master table, there can be many records in the detail table. If you are only dealing with one table, then it is the master table. A detail table in a multitable relationship is the table whose records are subordinate to those of the master table. A detail table is also called a slave table, a child table, or a many table.
