How do you lookup fields from one database to display in a view from another database?  Do you use a @DBColumn to retrieve the column from the other notes database?

You can use @DBColumn or @DBLookup to look up values but you must create a view which lists the value of the documents which you need to retrieve

I am rejecting this answer, because I need to know how to create a view from documents that are in one database and the view in another database.  Exactly, how do I get the information from a one database into the view in another database?

Remember... a view simply displays documents. These documents
contain fields which may reference fields in other documents in other databases (using @DbLookup or @DbColumn). You may use @DbColumn in a view column formula but it really doesn't make sense to do so in most cases. The key is to get the data from the other database "B" into documents in database "A" so that you can display the respective fields in your views. Hope this helps some.
