A PL/SQL record is a data structure that can hold data items of different kinds. Records consist of different fields, similar to a row of a database table.

For example, you want to keep track of your books in a library. You might want to track the following attributes about each book like, Title, Author, Subject, Book ID. A record containing a field for each of these items allows treating a BOOK as a logical unit and allows you to organize and represent its information in a better way.

PL/SQL can handle the following types of records:


Cursor-based records

User-defined records
