When a record has to be received using the hash key columns, then the address is generated, and the whole record is retrieved using that address. In the same way, when a new record has to be inserted, then the address is generated using the hash key and record is directly inserted. The same process is applied in the case of delete and update.

In this method, there is no effort for searching and sorting the entire file. In this method, each record will be stored randomly in the memory.
