The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

In Sybase Central (ver 16), I see a tiny exclamation point in the icon next o the name of one of my views. What is that telling me?

An Icon with a white 'X' on red background indicates a view has been disabled. An Icon with a black '!' on yellow background indicates the view is invalid; quite probably due to it referencing an object that no longer exists.

You can reproduce this easily this if you create a simple view on a table and then drop that table. View dependencies have been tracked since 11.0.0 and this is the visible manifestation of that feature.

A slight correction: View dependencies were already part of v10:)
