Using CONNX Views

Session Overview: "How can I help my business users get access to the data and information they want without the possible confusion associated with our complex file structures?" - Answer: CONNX Views. A CONNX View is a logical definition of a single or several physical files that could help isolate the user from file complexities, apply additional security, or apply pre-defined or commonly used SQL selection criteria.
