They are correct. The whole thing about a relational DB is that you use
tables and joins, instead of a hierarchical structure of records and fields,
to do searches. That means you can do an entirely different form of linking
than with records and fields. It's not a matter of these terms being more
"technical" than the user needs - they are accurate, and the low-end user
will have problems if you * don't * speak the lingo.
Cruise into Border's for a peek at books. If you find one that you can
understand, buy it.
Advice: Pick your battles with the programmers VERY carefully. Their whole
life is tied up in being accurate/correct/right. You can usually depend on
them for anything techie.
