Database Table Columns

In a database, a Table column (sometimes referred to as a field) stores a single data value of a particular type in each row of the Table.  Table columns can have various individual properties such as a default value or whether the field accepts Null values.

A Database Table Column is represented in the UML Data Modeling Profile as a stereotyped attribute; that is, an attribute with the <<column>> stereotype. In Enterprise Architect you create column definitions through the specially tailored Columns and Constraints screen.
