Hi,

I need some assistance on how to create a view that would be updated on a set schedule.  (probably hourly.)  

The client app I am working with generates temporary tables daily that are named with the prefix "M001948"

The view would something to the effect of:

CREATE VIEW V1 AS 

SELECT * FROM M0019480001

UNION

SELECT * FROM M0019480002

UNION 

SELECT * FROM M0019480003


I am not sure where to start, as I don't know the table names ahead of time.    I know I can get a result set of the current tables with something like.
         
       
 SELECT * FROM SYS.TABLES 
         WHERE (
         NAME LIKE 'M001948%' 

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
