When it comes to building a view in Viewpoint, two parameters that require consideration are server and syntax. What you select for both will impact how your objects are created and run and what functionality is available to you. For instance, while standard SQL syntax is available in Sequel, using a different syntax allows you to use calculated column names or convert numeric fields to dates. Watch the video below as Sheryl walks you through the differences between a server connection of *SEQUEL and *LOCALSYS, as well as a comparison of using a syntax of *SEQUEL vs. *SERVER. No matter the server connection or syntax, Sequel offers you flexibility.
