CommCell Views provides a way to query information on the CommCell components directly from the SQL database. You can use these default views, or you can create or customize the existing views to reflect the data in your organization. The views are created by querying the database. These queries are by default displayed in SQL Enterprise Manager. You can also use products such as Crystal Reports, Microsoft Reporting Services and/or Microsoft Excel to format your query output. If you modify a view or create a new view, you must reapply them after each new release.
