List Working In The SharePoint 2010
SharePoint 2010 caters number of lists in order to track the information you want. Somehow, it is quite similar to the Excel’s spreadsheet and tables in the database. The data in a list is assembled in rows and each row in a list is known as list item. In other words, you can say that a list item is a data containing row in the columns and the columns can be multiple in a list.
For your assistance, here is a list of contacts which may have the following columns like:-
- First Name
- Middle Name
- Last Name
- Phone Number
- Email id
There are generally three basic types of lists in SharePoint:-
- Communication lists

- Custom Lists
Communication Lists :-
These lists are usually used to track contacts, announcements and discussion boards.
Tracking Lists :-

Custom Lists :-
These lists are used as a starting template which allows you to create the list with the exact number of columns you need.
