Hi,
I have crated a view with Top 100 Percent in the Select Clause and an order by Column name. It is working fine when I execute the view in the Enterprise Manager.

But When I put,

Select * from View1

It is not giving the sorted result.

this works right?
Select * from View1 order by columnname
i think top 100% order by x simply tells it to collect: up to 100%, by order of column x.  it can do that using multiple threads and arrive at some result. but because it's a view, it's the the final result. the result gets dumped in any order (that threads complete)

in views, you need to use the following method to allow sortings:


CREATE VIEW view_name 
AS 
SELECT TOP 100 PERCENT ... 
FROM ... 
WHERE ... 
ORDER BY ...

Open in new window

Check whether there exists another view with the same name and different owner  ?

If I put

Select * From View1 Order By Column2

It is working fine. But I require it to sort when I select.

It Works out. But I would like to know whether this will affect our performance or not.
