In this example, the vtb3 view is created from table tb in example 1. The title “This is the title” defined in table tb is not carried over to the view because column b is an expression in the SELECT list of the view definition.

CREATE VIEW vtb3 AS
(SELECT a, b (SMALLINT)
 FROM tb);

SELECT TITLE(vtb3.b);

The SELECT statement produces the following output:

Title(b)
-----------
b
