Oracle updating through view
The advantage of embedded librefs is that you can store engine-host options and DBMS connection information, such as passwords, in the view.
That, in turn, means that you do not have to remember and reenter that information when you want to use the libref.
The syntax for using a PROC SQL view in SAS is the same as that for a PROC SQL table.
For an example, see Using SQL Procedure Tables in SAS Software.
To save the extra step, specify the view in-line, enclosed in parentheses, in the FROM clause. An in-line view produces a table internally that the outer query uses to select data.
Unlike views that are created with the CREATE VIEW statement, in-line views are not assigned names and cannot be referenced in other queries or SAS procedures as if they were tables.
When you have auto update enabled, your system periodically checks for new versions of Java.
When a new version is found we ask your permission to upgrade your Java installation.
You could create a view and refer to it in your FROM clause, but that process involves two steps.
We strongly recommend that you do not disable the update feature.
Instead, change preferences for how often you'd like to be notified of newer versions.
SQL Server's views are updateable, but it is possible that when you insert a new record or update an existing record, the record added or modified doesn't logical belog to the view any longer.
For example, consider the following view: then all the records visible in the view are updated with a differente State value, and therefore would disappear from the view itself.
