I can explain you the Difference between Single Value Field (SVF) and Multi Value Field(MVF)

SVF- a field in BC which references a column in a table

MVF- a field in parent BC which references a field in child BC

Field-Identifies and defines a field in a business component. All fields making up a business component record contain entries from both Single Value Field and Multi Value Field object types.

The difference between the SVF and MVF  is

The SVF will be based on the same bc's base table or it may be the joined base table (1:1 or 1:M).
But the MVF will be based on the linked bc's base table(M:1).

Please correct me if i am wrong...:)

Fields and SVF are both objects of Business component.
Fields whatever it might be SVF  or MVF can be seen available in Fields.
But We can not be able to able see a field which is MVF in SVF but this MVF will be seen in Fields Child Object
e.g-In Account BC-Address Id is a MVF
This Address Id will be found available in Field Child Object but not in the Single Value Field of the Account BC

Field can be Single Value Field(SVF) or Multi Value Field(MVF). SVF are applicable to only those fields that are not multi-value fields. MVF displays child records of the parent record
