A view is a display of some or all of the fields from one or more tables. You join two or more tables for a view by specifying the relationships between fields in different tables and choosing the type of join to use.
Views are used in browses, which display the fields gathered using views. By choosing which fields to include or exclude in a view, you control which fields are available for a browse to display. By putting security on the view, you can allow users to modify browses, knowing that they can access only those fields that you have authorized.
Use View Maintenance (36.20.18) to create or modify views.
