Virtual Table Definition window


Allows you to create or modify virtual tables. A virtual table stores information about the relationships created between member tables. When a virtual table is created, it is necessary to add member tables, member fields, member keys, as well as relationship definitions.

Because a virtual table does not exist as a physical entity, a virtual table must be read-only. This characteristic makes a virtual table ideal for tasks where data is read, such as when creating reports or scrolling windows.
