Subject: Re: ClinTrial - SAS views
Updated: as in when the data changes in clintrial, the data in the sas
view reflects the changes as soon as they happen. i.e. the view is
directly linked to the live data. (maybe this is the definition of a
view) So every time the view is opened, or read in, it contains the same
information that is in the clintrial database at that moment.
Does that make sense?
