Explanation:
In a database all fields are in part defined by the number of bits of i,nformation they can store. "Bitfeld" could be in,tepreted to mean a "one bit field". Since this doies not seem certain from the context, "field" is sufficient for the purpose. By the way, "bit field" as a term is not listed in any of my dictionaries.
