views and joins can’t be compared as they are very different things
(ie you could have join inside a view)
A View is like your MS Access Query
it will spit out results such as
“Give me the names of everyone older than 30 that plays tennis” say
The different between a VIEW and a Stored Procedure
is that a View will only use the “SELECT” statement
you can’t update or delete records with a View
(very simplistic answer there are other differences too)
Now join is a different thing all together
its a function used in a SQL Statement
SELECT blah blah FROM tblBlog, tblBlig WHERE … … etc INNER JOIN
(reason I am not giving you a more readable code is because I never user JOINS in any of my queries so I forgot the syntax! )
dbo is standard for database object.
much like you have say an Excel object
excel.application.forms … etc
its just their standard object model.
the hierarchy can go even higher levels
something loosely like:
try and see what happens when you ommit dbo on your queries.
you still get the same result.
