Working with Views

When you want a customized and updatable data set for your application, you can create and use views. Views combine the characteristics of tables and queries by providing a way to retrieve records from one or more related tables or views. You can create views using single or multiple tables or views, use views to update data in tables and display data, update views, and move data offline for manipulation.
