A View is also a table. Its fields come from the fields of one or more tables of the database. It provides a way to look at a number of fields without regard to the table to which any of the fields belong. A View can consists of some of the fields on one table as in Figure 11. Or, it can consist of fields from more than one field as in Figure 12.
