ViewQuery

Specifies the SQL query for this class. Applies only to view definition classes.

Usage

To specify the SQL query for this class, use the following syntax:

ViewQuery = { statement }
Copy code to clipboard

Where statement is an SQL SELECT statement, enclosed in curly braces.

Details

When you define an SQL view (using the DDL CREATE VIEW statement or using the Management Portal), the system automatically creates a class definition to hold the view definition. For this class definition, ClassType is view, and ViewQuery equals the SQL statement on which the view is based.

This mechanism is internal; users are not expected to create view classes nor to modify the ViewQuery keyword. Instead, use the normal mechanisms (DDL or the Management Portal) for managing views.

This keyword is ignored for all non-view classes.

Default

The default value is an empty string.
