Creates a new view.

Note Note

The Microsoft Access database engine does not support the use of CREATE VIEW, or any of the DDL statements, with non-Microsoft Access database engine databases.

CREATE VIEW view [(field1[, field2[, …]])] AS selectstatement

The CREATE VIEW statement has these parts:

Part

Description

view

The name of the view to be created.

field1, field2

The name of field or fields for the corresponding fields specified in selectstatement.

selectstatement

A SQL SELECT statement. For more information, see SELECT Statement.

The SELECT statement that defines the view cannot be a SELECT INTO statement.

The SELECT statement that defines the view cannot contain any parameters.

The name of the view cannot be the same as the name of an existing table.

If the query defined by the SELECT statement is updatable, then the view is also updatable. Otherwise, the view is read-only.

If any two fields in the query defined by the SELECT statement have the same name, the view definition must include a field list specifying unique names for each of the fields in the query.
