Simple question about relationships and views

Question

Hi, 

Silly question I know, but:

what's the point in having a relationship between table if later you can always create a view, regardless the relationship you have set up?

 

Thanks

Hello @Umbie,

You have 2 options:

1. First create relationships between tables and then build a View based on these tables. In this case when you create a View, on the View Properties screen, the relationships are build automatically. 

2. If relationships are not set up and you join tables in a View, you should choose the fields to join tables manually on the View Properties screen

Also, please note that you may find some helpful features only in the Relationship Settings. For example, Enforce Referential Integrity between parent and child table, Display value instead of the ID on the DataPage level. 

Here is the article about the Relationship Settings https://howto.caspio.com/tables-and-views/relationships/relationship-settings/

Hope this helps.
