Hi Robert,

Thanks, so far...;-) I understand that a View would be more efficient
in execution than the equivalent query. And this seems to be more or
less the practical extent of justification for view over query.

My version:
Version: / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 30(Build:2)
CPU threads: 2; OS: Linux 5.14; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: en-GB (en_GB.UTF-8); UI: en-GB
Calc: threaded

How do I identify the internal db used? Firebird (version
1.7) is installed in my configuration, HSQLDB is not.

I think I understand your tip to mean that i should use queries until
they are 'final' and then create views as appropriate.

One thing, however, does hit me.

Views will be executed in the database. The content will look for
like a non-writable table. You could filter data, sort data and use
views for repprts, but you couldn't update, add or delete data.

Database won#t know anything about queries in the queries pane.
will send from tBase to the database. So queries will be a little bit
slower. But queries could be used for input, update or delete data,
all primary keys of the included tables were available.

Initial design of a View with the GUI, is done similar to a Query,
which is OK. However, when the View is stored, then further
of that View seems very limited if not impossible, as the Table-
GUI is opened on Edit.

Which version pf LO and which (internal) database do you use? This
(opening table editor, not query editor) has been solved for internal
Firebird database some times ago. In LO the query editor will

One hint: I will save all views separately as queries. It is because
view could depend on another view. So I couldn't chang the view I
created, if another view needs data of this view. I have to delete
views depending on this view and have to recreate them afterwards.
