A view is a dynamic representation of some part(s) the database. It can only display data, not change it.

No. You are asking how to change the wheel on a car by looking at a picture of the car.

thanks again. I asked this question because I'm new to sql. And in a previous topic, I asked for help to create a field calculated with subtraction in a view. As they couldn't help me, I thought of using view to create and update a table, and make the calculated field in that table

If you are new to SQL (and any other tchnology) then rather than trying to guess things, make use of some of the excellent tutorials which will help you to understand what is, and is not, possible. The one I use most often is at SQL Tutorial[^].

Well, a possibility to change data through view depends on database provider...

SQL Server: Modify Data Through a View - SQL Server | Microsoft Docs[^]
MySQL: MySQL :: MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual :: 25.5.3 Updatable and Insertable Views[^]
Postgres: PostgreSQL Updatable Views[^]
