A view is nothing more than a SQL statement that is stored in the database with an associated name. A view is actually a composition of a table in the form of a predefined SQL query.

A view can contain all rows of a table or select rows from a table. A view can be created from one or many tables which depends on the written SQL query to create a view.

Views, which are kind of virtual tables, allow users to do the following:

  • Structure data in a way that users or classes of users find natural or intuitive.

  • Restrict access to the data such that a user can see and (sometimes) modify exactly what they need and no more.

  • Summarize data from various tables which can be used to generate reports.
