While spreadsheets also have rows and columns and can be used to organize and store data, databases typically refer to a more specialized system designed for efficient data storage, retrieval, and management.

In a database, data is organized into tables, which consist of rows and columns. Each row represents a record, and each column represents a specific attribute or field of that record.

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.

Database contains spreadsheets and spreadsheets contain table.

Further tables contain rows and columns where data is stored.

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.
