What is the difference between row types and structures?

0 Kudos

As far as I understand, both focus on one line of a table and both say something about the data type in each field of that row. I see them both as 'blueprints' for how a table could look. Could anyone explain the difference between the two in terms of what they hold and what they are used for?
