We present an error-correcting code suitable for encoding relational database information to be stored in a volume holographic memory system. The code makes use of the page-oriented format of holographic memories as well as the tabular arrangement of database records. The performance metrics discussed here show that the code results in industry-standard bit error rates and permits simple and fast decoding.
