Is it possible to se view definition in QBE

Is it possible to se view definition in QBE

(OP)
I am using Mimer SQL tool QBE (query by example) to examine a SQL Server database. Is it possible to se the definition of a view in this tool.

RE: Is it possible to se view definition in QBE

There is always the information_schema views.

The standard view information_schema.views contains the definition of a view provided that you are the owner of the schema that the view is defined in. One problem is that if the size of the definition exceeds 2000 (version 8.2) and 800 (version 9.1) characters you need to use the Mimer specific view information_schema.ext_source_definition
