A fields enumeration works differently in the ViewBody element for a view than it does elsewhere in CAML. In a view body, the enumeration loops through the fields in the ViewFields collection, instead of through all the fields in the list.

The following example defines the body for a document library view. Each record in the view is rendered according to the class ms-vb defined in the Core.css file (\\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\LCID\STYLES).

    <![CDATA[ <TR> ]]>
      <![CDATA[ <TD Class="ms-vb"> ]]>
    <Field />
      <![CDATA[ </TD> ]]>
    <![CDATA[ </TR> ]]>
