PRO/SQL View Report option

Choose this option to see the information about all SQL views defined for the working database.
Note: Views of non-OpenEdge databases are treated as tables. To display information for these views, use the table reports option. See Database Menu Reference for more information on generating a table report.
When you choose PRO/SQL > PRO/SQL View Report, the Data Dictionary alphabetically lists all the views defined for your database. Select the views for which you want information. The following figure shows the first portion of a View Report window.
