Creating views in T-SQL or in the view designer
Part one of a five-part series of blogs
Views are queries that you can save and reuse; but you can also use them as a basis for further queries. They do have their foibles too, as this blog explores.
A view is simply an SQL query that you've saved and want to be able to run again in the future.
Some of the views in the Wise Owl Movies database.
This bit of our SQL training series shows how to create, amend and use views. I've divided it up into 5 bits:
|Part||What it covers|
|Designing views||Creating views in design view.|
|Scripting views||Writing SQL to create and alter views.|
|Pros of views||Why you should be using views.|
|Cons of views||Why you might not want to use views.|
Let's start with how to create or change a view in the view designer.
For users of Access: a view is almost exactly the same as an Access query, if this helps.
