View permissions

Can I construct a restricted view and grant select access on it to a
user without granting select access to the underlying tables and views?
This seems to be an easy way to restrict a user to just 'his part' of
the database.

Yes, you can give users access to views without giving them access to the
underlying tables. That is one of the main benefits of views in DB2.

Note that views may or may not be read-only, depending on how they are
defined. For example, if a view is defined on a join of two or more tables,
it is always automatically read-only. The exact rules for what makes a view
read-only are stated in the SQL Reference. If they are not read-only, you
may or may not want to take precautions to prevent updates via those views.

Also, views may be based on other views, to as many levels as you like so
that it is perfectly possible to have a view of a view of a view of a view.
Be careful though: if your view is based on another view or table, if that
object is dropped, your view also disappears, automatically and without

Yes, of course.

That's one of the benefits of views.

Hello: I have an Access 2K form I built from a SQL Server 7.0 view. I want to lock certain fields in the database from users so they can see them on the views and forms, but NOT be able to edit them. I've looked in BOL, MS SQL Server web page and SQL Server 7.0 books and could not find how to do this. Any advise will be greatly appreciated.

What is the best way to grant a user permission to create a view? I first created a role using enterprise manager but for the role I created it doesn't seem to offer that permission. It offers the basic stuff such as insert, select, and update. I could go in and use a grant create view sql statement I suppose but I'd rather do it through enterprise manager where it would be visible if I need to change it in the future.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
