  entry in all tables used in the view.
• Outer Join:
• With an outer join, records are also selected
  for which there is no entry in some of the
  tables used in the view.
•   View is a virtual table.
•   Types
•   Database view
•   Projection view
•   Help view
•   Maintenance view
              Database view

-If a database view contains only one single table,
   data can be inserted in this table with the view.
-A database view may only contain transparent
           Projection View
• Projection views are used to hide fields of a
• A projection view contains exactly one
  table .Hence no joins
• You cannot define selection conditions for
  projection views.
• You can also access pooled tables and
  cluster tables with a projection view.
                Help view
• You have to create a help view if a view
  with outer join is needed as selection
  method of a search help
• If you need a view with outer join for the
  data selection, you have to use a help view
  as selection method.
• All the tables included in a help view must
  be linked with foreign keys.
            Maintenance View
• It uses outer join
• Maintenance views offer easy ways to maintain
  complex application objects.
