Hi,

If you are talking about MS SQL then:
1. Use CREATE VIEW statement

with ADOQuery1 do begin
  Close;
  SQL.Clear;
  SQL.Add('CREATE VIEW MyView AS');
  SQL.Add('SELECT Field1, Field2 FROM Table1');
  ExecSQL;
end;

2. Use the already created view as regular table

with ADOQuery2 do begin
  Close;
  SQL.Clear;
  SQL.Add('SELECT * FROM MyView');
  Open;
  // do something here
  Close;
end;

Would you explain what you understand as 'view' in paradox? As far as I know there is no such thing. I said that my code above is for MSSQL server.

A possible solution could be:

1. using CREATE TABLE statement create a new empty table with the desired structure

CREATE TABLE "MyView.db"
(
  custno NUMERIC(10,2),
  company CHAR(20)
)

2. using INSERT INTO statement with SELECT inside fill that table:

INSERT INTO "MyView.db"
(custno, company)
SELECT custno, company
FROM "customer.db" WHERE custno > 100

3. use MyView as a regular table in another query

4. when you don't need it anymore execute
DROP TABLE "MyView.db"

About View In Paradox I Meant Using Sql (Creat View Command) on Paradox7 Database Using BDE Component In Delphi6 (Tquery)
Rather Than Ado Component (Tadoquery)

Hi,

There is no difference whether you'll use TQuery or TADOQuery. The problem is if Paradox supports CREATE VIEW command. I think it doesn't. That's why I proposed creating a new table instead.

If you have MSSQL server then you'll use MS Transact SQL, if you connect to Oracle then you'll use Oracle's SQL etc. Delphi passes SQL statements to the SQL server you are connected to.
