What Is a RECORD in PL/SQL?
RECORD is a composite data type in PL/SQL. It can have many fields representing data elements with different
data types. Variables of RECORD type can be designed to hold data from database table rows.
To use RECORD data type, you need to define a specific RECORD type with each field defined with a name and a data type.
Then you can use your specific RECORD type to define your RECORD type variables.
