SQL and Lookup View Definitions

SQL and Lookup View Definitions

If a test contains either an SQL view or a lookup view as a source, Data Validation Option prints the view definition as part of the report.
You cannot print a report showing the definition of the view by itself because each view is tied to a specific test definition. For example, you create an SQL view, use it in a table pair, and run a test. You then update the view by changing the SQL statement, and re-run the test. Each test result is based on a different view definition, which is why the view definition must be tied to a specific result.
