DISPLAY VIEWS Command
Displays information about SQL views in the current database and indicates whether the SQL views are based on local or remote tables.
DISPLAY VIEWS [TO PRINTER [PROMPT] | TO FILE FileName] [NOCONSOLE]
- TO PRINTER [PROMPT]
- Directs output from DISPLAY VIEWS to a printer.
You can include PROMPT to display the Print dialog box before printing starts. Place the PROMPT keyword immediately after TO PRINTER.
- TO FILE FileName
- Directs output from DISPLAY VIEWS to the file specified with FileName. If the file already exists and SET SAFETY is ON, Visual FoxPro displays a prompt asking if you want to overwrite the file.
- Suppresses output to the main Visual FoxPro window or to the active user-defined window.
Use DBGETPROP( ) to return additional information about SQL views in the current database.
SQL views are created with CREATE SQL VIEW.
The following example opens the
testdata database. CREATE SQL VIEW is used to create a local SQL view named
myview. The View Designer is displayed, making it possible for you to specify tables and conditions for the SQL view. After you save the SQL view you create, information about the SQL views in the database is displayed.
CLOSE DATABASES OPEN DATABASE (HOME(2) + 'Data\testdata') CREATE SQL VIEW myview CLEAR DISPLAY VIEWS
