It depends on your requirements.

If you have your table ready with all the requirement why do you need view.

It's good to use table rather than View.

But yes if you want to have some more columns from other table in your final fact table. You can use the view in that case.

You can also use the view or named query in DSV  ( Data source View )when you want to change some of the property of table.

Like In that you have ID as primary key but in fact you want some other column as primary key.

You have to use view or can also use the Named query.


But using table is useful because if you do any changes in that table and come back to dsv and just refresh the dsv. You are ready with all the changes.

it depends
usually  View as the Cube source is used.. -- combination of different table columns, Sums, AVG, etc..
all that makes sense to use for SSAS cubes, mesures, etc..
