With "cell" I mean the value of a particular column in a particular row. I'm not sure if its called just "cell" or this is a spreadsheet thing.

It's called a field when on a database: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Field_(computer_science) also en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Column_(database)

In SQL terminology, we have Tables, Rows and Columns. The term Column is applied to the table as a whole, and also within a single row.
In relational theory, we have Relations, Tuples, and Attributes, filling similar roles.
(Going a bit Celko here): Generally, the term Field fits into the terminology of Files and Records, and doesn't fit within DB naming.
