    HI,
    Is there any way to find out on which
    tables the views are built on.

    Hi
    If you have TOAD then extract the script of that view and you can find out from which tables it's built.

    thanks

    You can get the information of view from user_tab_columns table.

    Retrieve Table_name, column_name from user_tab_columns for table_name like 'Viewname'

    Thanks

    Without TOAD its not possible

    You can use TEXT column from any of these dba_views, user_views, all_views

    TEXT column stores the defination of view

    If you don't have TOAD you can select the TEXT from the USE R_VIEWS view.

    e.g.

    SELECT text
    FROM user_views
    WHERE view_name = 'my_view';

    select table_name, column_name from user_tab_columns where table_name like 'Viewname';

    Thanks

    This doesn't tell you anything about underlyning tables - the TABLE_NAME in the above query is in fact the name of the view 'Viewname'.

    Maybe you could use any variant of the following:

    SELECT referenced_name FROM DBA_DEPENDENCIES
    WHERE owner='VIEW_OWNER'
    AND name = 'MY_VIEW'
    AND referenced_type = 'TABLE';

    Although the query itself might be terribly slow and inefficient.

    With TOAD, you can connect to any oracle DB that you will be able to access from local windows box. It's merely a front end tool...

    There can't be Toad for WIN,T for U, T for Linux etc...

    There is always a better way to do the things.

    Mr Badrinath,
    i know that it is a tool,
    and as far as my company is concerned, we dont have a single
    machine running on windows.
