<<to look at the data, but he does not want to show the pdn db>>

If he needs to look at only a couple of tables, you can export them to Excel.

If you need to give him read access to all the tables you can give him db_datareader for that database.

We are trying out this software that can link to sql and create reports, but my boss does not want them to link to PDN and see all the structure, so, I want to see if it is possible that they can connect to a dummy db that has a VIEW that links to pdn db...thx

Do they need all the tables or just few of them?

I don't see how you can allow them to see all the data and not the structure.

One thing you could do is, to create a new db and export just the tables to that database and given them access..
