Data module

The Data module provides

* An API for insert/update/delete operations
* Automatic views integration
* Together with CTools module: exportable configurations
* Together with schema module: schema inspection and fixing

Its companion Data UI provides

data tables:

* Edit table to be indexed
* Click on "Configure search" tab

Use Data Node module if you would like to relate nodes to data records:

* Go to admin/content/data
* Edit table to relate to nodes
* Click on "Relate to nodes" tab
* Pick a content type
* Pick which id in table will be related to a node id
* Optionally:

    a node.
  * Configure Data Node block to show up in sidebar for selecting an 
    active node to add a data table record to.
