Dear Experts

I have a table consisting of the following:

pAddress    (char50)        [Property Address]
pLat             (varchar20)  [Latitude]
pLong          (varchar20)  [Longitude]


I would like to create a view from this table that includes another column (polygon).  The polygon value will be calculated from the pLat and pLong values.

Is this possible?

Thanks

It should be something like:

create view get_polygon_values as
select pAddress as    [Property Address],
      pLat  as  [Latitude],
      pLong as  [Longitude],
      pLat + ';' + pLong as [Polygon]
from tablename
GO

select * from get_polygon_values


You should update the view whith whatever your mean for [Polygon] is. I just gave an example by concatenating the two fields.
