Views

Views are useful for allowing users to access a set of relations (tables) as if it were a single table, and limiting their access to just that. Views can also be used to restrict access to rows (a subset of a particular table).
 

 

New views are created within Create View Wizard. In order to run the wizard you should either

 

select the Object | Create Database Object... main menu item;
select the View icon in the Create Database Object dialog

or

select the Views list or any object from that list in the explorer tree;
select the Create New View... item from the popup menu

or

open Schema (Database) Editor and the Views tab there;
press the Insert key or select the Create New View item from the popup menu (alternatively, you may use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar).

       

To create a new view with the same properties as one of the existing views has:

 

select the Object | Duplicate Database Object... main menu item.
follow the instructions of Duplicate Object Wizard.

 

 

 

Views can be edited within View Editor. In order to run the editor you should either

 

select the view for editing in the explorer tree (type the first letters of the view name for quick search);
select the Edit View... item from the popup menu

or

open Schema (Database) Editor and the Views tab there;
select the view to edit;
press the Enter key or select the Edit View item from the popup menu (alternatively, you may use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar).

       

You can change the name of the view using the Rename View dialog. To open the dialog you should either

 

select the view to rename in the explorer tree;
select the Rename View item from the popup menu

or

open Schema (Database) Editor and the Views tab there;
select the view to rename;
select the Rename View item from the popup menu (alternatively, you may use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar).

 

 

 

To drop a view:

 

select the view to drop in the explorer tree;
select the Drop View item from the popup menu

or

open Schema (Database) Editor and the Views tab there;
select the view to drop;
press the Delete key or select the Drop View item from the popup menu (alternatively, you may use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar)

 

and confirm dropping in the dialog window.
