Master file will contain the details regarging all the transactions.

But Transaction file will contain the details about one particular transaction.

Say, every day transaction file may be created. But only one Master file will be there always.

So, the details from Transaction file will be added or updated to the Master file everyday.

This is a case, not for all situations.

Correct me if I am wrong.

the simplest example of the relation master/transaction
is a banking current account "thing"

MASTER the dataset where the account balance resides

shrunk to the basics
just two fields "account_number,balance(signed_number)"

TRANSACTION, the term should be self explaining
the dataset containg the transactions used to update the master
the same as above
just two fields "account_number,transaction_amount(signed_number)"
