    Excellent Read!

    I learned a lot. Although I was hoping to see something on "CASE" as I don't understand it.

    Question: Can you use a VIEW in an UPDATE statement?

    answer: only if the view is updatable

    this isn't covered in the book so you'll have to search teh interwebs for it: updatable view

    Excellent info here. Although I know SQL well enough to do what I need , this chapter clarified some things (joins) for me.
