I don't know anyway or think it possible to pull SQL data into a notesview directly as views are specific to NotesData.

If designing a display page using a Form, page or Xpages to it would be possible to code an SQL query to pull the data in on the server and merge it with notes data from a view to make a suitable display.

If the data is static you could look at regular import or refresh of data into a Notes Database.

Thanks for your answer.  

Is there anyway for a Action button to generate a report from SQL Report services?

What Notes/Domino releases do you have? Would there be a way to display the data using an embedded browser page, where the contents are obtained directly from the SQL server??

I think it should be possible to create a Page or a Form, and put some passthru HTML in it that retrieves the SQL server contents.

What's important: do you have a fixed URL to retrieve that info? Can you already get the info from the SQL server using a browser?
