Questions and Answers
Yes. See http://forums.mysql.com/list.php?100
After a view has been created, it is possible to drop or
alter a table or view to which the definition refers. To
check a view definition for problems of this kind, use the
CHECK TABLE statement. (See
CHECK TABLE 構文」.)
It is possible, provided that your
statement has a column list that makes it clear there's only
one table involved.
You cannot insert into multiple tables with a single insert on a view.
