Alter regular views

You can alter a regular view using Sybase Central or Interactive SQL.

In Sybase Central, you can alter the definition of views, procedures, and functions on the object's SQL tab in the right pane. You edit a view in a separate window by selecting the view and then choosing File » Edit In New Window. In Interactive SQL, you can use the ALTER VIEW statement to alter a view. The ALTER VIEW statement replaces a view definition with a new definition, but it maintains the permissions on the view.

You cannot rename an existing view. Instead, you must create a new view with the new name, copy the previous definition to it, and then drop the old view.

If you use the ALTER VIEW statement to alter a view owned by another user, you must qualify the name by including the owner (for example, GROUPO.EmployeeConfidential). If you don't qualify the name, the database server looks for a view with that name owned by you and alters it. If there isn't one, it returns an error.
