What’s a Database?

A database is a collection of related information. Your local telephone book is a database of names, addresses, and phone numbers. Your e-mail address book is also a database of names and e-mail addresses — and sometimes additional information.

In the computer world, a database is a collection of files that store related information. The Timeslips database is no exception; it stores all the information you track with Sage Timeslips: all your timekeepers, clients, tasks, expenses, slips, payments, and so on. When you create your Timeslips database, Sage Timeslips automatically creates a folder in which to store these files.
