Of course, but that would probably make it just another copy-paste from Books Online, or at least a recap of probably a lot of other articles out there about indexed views.

See, I did change the title!

I see both sides on the denormalization thing. Ended up thinking that it was the right way to go for this article, not nearly enough people understand that any type of indexing is denormalizing.

As powerful as the feature is, the biggest reason I dont leverage it much is the schemabinding. I work in an environment where change DOES happen, schemabinding makes changes harder. Not that there is a better solution yet.

Yes, I see, but didn't post, because I don't want to sound picky again

Actually, the author is specifically using indexed views as an alternative to denormalizing the base tables.  The use of indexed views as a way to bring about the same effect as denormalizing is an awesome technique if it works as described (which I'm testing right now).

Rock on, three points awarded to sanity's side.

I am confused about what can and can't be done with SQL Server Standard Edition. I have Standard Edition and want to turn some of my existing views into indexed views if it will increase the performance of selects against them.

Is this possible?

PRB: Indexed Views Can Be Created on All Versions of SQL Server 2000

 
The "Creating an Indexed View" topic of SQL Server Books Online states that Indexed Views can only be created on the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Enterprise edition and Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Developer edition.

That statement is incorrect.

Thanks, I worked that out eventually!

This article is good for understanding indexed views, plus it has a section on "Using Indexed Views On Non Enterprise Editions of SQL Server":
