Creating Views (Data Definition Guide)
Go Up to Working with Views
CREATE VIEW statement creates a virtual table based on one or more underlying tables in the database. You can perform select, project, join, and union operations on views just as if they were tables.
The user who creates a view is its owner and has all privileges for it, including the ability to
GRANT privileges to other users, triggers, and stored procedures. A user can be granted privileges to a view without having access to its base tables.

CREATE VIEW name [(view_col [, view_col …])] AS <select> [WITH CHECK OPTION];
