Hello Experts,

I was wonder is it possible to create a unique_id to my Oracle view?  I know you can do this for a table, but my join duplicates each record making duplicate unique_id's of the table.

Thanks

You would need to add some identified to the underlying view query that uniquely identifies each row.

If the join is resulting in duplicates, maybe the join is wrong?

you can rownum to the view's query

if that doesn't do it, can you post your queries as well as what you'd like the results to look like? (sample data, not a written description)
