can any one explain views concept in sqlserver
Updated 22-Sep-22 20:30pm

In SQL, a view is a virtual table based on the result-set of an SQL statement.

A view contains rows and columns, just like a real table. The fields in a view are fields from one or more real tables in the database.

You can add SQL functions, WHERE, and JOIN statements to a view and present the data as if the data were coming from one single table.

CREATE VIEW view_name AS
SELECT column_name(s)
FROM table_name
WHERE condition

In SQL, a View is just a virtual table that is constructed based on the results of another SQL operation. Views were created to simplify data delivery and reduce the complexity of numerous tables. Views assist us in maintaining data integrity and providing data security, so acting as a security mechanism.

Hope this small definition helps.

While I applaud your urge to help people, it's a good idea to stick to new questions, rather than 8 year old ones. After that amount of time, it's unlikely that the original poster is at all interested in the problem any more!

Answering old questions can be seen as rep-point hunting, which is a form of site abuse. Particularly when your answer doesn't really add anything to existing answers. The more trigger happy amongst us will start the process of banning you from the site if you aren't careful. Stick to new questions and you'll be fine.
