document:

. . . a container of information in written, printed or otherwise viewable form. A document is a message medium which makes use of text, marks, symbols, pictures and other recognizable features in order to display contents. It is an instrument of communication which can be organized, stored, manipulated, and transmitted; i.e., documents can be handled in a number of ways, including transmitting them electronically. Several hundred years ago scriveners and scribes created or copied documents by hand.

Documents can be reference material. They can be reports or essays and the like. They are made up of single or multiple pages as, for example, research documents, computer documents, online documents, and resource documents. A couple of examples of other ways documents also might be labeled are public documents and secret documents.

Generally speaking, documents function as evidence of intentions, whereas records function as evidence of activities (source of quote). The term documentation is often associated with records management. The definition of a record is provided by Business Dictionary.com. Documentation of a process requires maintaining a working document.
