Kexi/Handbook/Kexi Basics/Kexi Databases
Many applications such as OpenOffice.org, LibreOffice or Microsoft Excel create files generally referred to as documents. Kexi creates files too, but we refer to them as Kexi database files, or simply database files.
In addition to storing your databases in database files, Kexi can also store your databases on database servers, which is why we refer to the former as database files, and not simply as databases.
The term 'Kexi project', or simply 'project' is also used to refer to a Kexi database, regardless of whether it is stored in a file or on a server.
