The database is in fact an interactive or alive spreadsheet from the computer component perspective. If you look at how all data is processed in a computer, there is a spreadsheet like grid at the root level.

I disagree with the idea that there is a huge difference between a spreadsheet and a table.

The spreadsheet and the table are for all purposes the same.

Whenever attempting to explain what a database IS, to naive persons, I liken it to a spreadsheet, and explain that the rows are records, tuples, and the columns are fields.

Invariably, I explain that the spreadsheet was never intended for data storage use, but rather it was intended to calculate.

The fact is that wherever a database is needed, you'll see a spreadsheet or millions of them populating like rabbits in a computer.

We should just differentiate - a spreadsheet is a FLAT FILE, and a database is generally a layered and connected set of spreadsheets.

Database is a table which the relationship between the row and a column because of it data, so it can't be considered as a spreadsheet. But it set a connection between a row and a column because of it's data which has been stored in it. And moreover spreadsheet can't store the data in it.
