The difference between field groups and internal tables

What is the difference between field groups and internal tables?

What is the difference between field groups and internal tables?
Aside from different ABAP statements to handle them, the essential difference is that field groups have the data stored on disk, and internal tables use memory. Internal tables are much more flexible than field groups, and far more widely understood, and so should be used in preference.
