Ex:Table Employee have 2 field (Employeecode,EmployeeName)
every employee should have his own employeecode.
-Jason = EMP1000
-Jacky = EMP1001
-JACK = EMP1002

Cut from MSDN library:
primary key
A column or combination of columns that uniquely identifies a row in a table. It cannot allow null values and must always have a unique index. A primary key is used to relate a table to foreign keys in other tables.
