Abstract

This process maintains fields in complete records which are physically different but logically related. It is particularly advantageous in applications where users may be allowed access only to a limited number of physical records or a limited field in the records. For example, in personnel records, it may be desirable to allow access only to a name field but not an address field in each logical record block.
