    Unanswered: Help Creating a View

    Hi! I'm creating a view of a file who has a key field that is a character which contains numbers but is padded to the left so i created a view that does this digits(cast(translate(field, '000', '\') as dec(8,0))) when i run the program it says that it has no key. How do i make this new field be the key?

    Well, yes - depending on exactly what you are asking . . .

    It is perfectably ok to post some clarifying information along with a cryptic question.

    Keep in mind that you know exactly what you are asking, but many do not.
