If I have two tables as shown below, could anyone tell me if and how its possible to create a view
that has only one column that contains the dbName values from both the tutor and student tables?

Thanks in advance

CREATE TABLE tutor
(
dbId INTEGER ,
dbName VARCHAR(20),
dbEmail VARCHAR(20),
dbPassword VARCHAR(8)NOT NULL
);



CREATE TABLE student
(
dbId INTEGER NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY,
dbName VARCHAR(20),
dbCourse VARCHAR(20),
dbPassword VARCHAR(8) NOT NULL,
dbPersonalTutorId INTEGER NOT NULL
);

Paul,

Look into using two queries combined with UNION.... and check into the difference between UNION and UNION ALL, to be sure you use the right one.

Hope this helps,
