Question
Hello,Can you explain why random access is not possible in a ''Record''?

Answer
The database needs to fetch a certain number of entries at a time, often based on relevance. Trying to fetch them in random order would often require the database process and find all previous entries, while simply asking for the first 10 is a lot less work.
