tks for the question.

Wonder how many would have jumped at "6 columns" for STEP 2 if it were an option...

Wondered the same, but alas and alack after my series of QOD's concerning VIEWS I decided to leave this one rather simple to answer, correctly.

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

I <newbie> also hesitated before submitting, but got it. I'd heard some discussion regarding this from some of my peers...

Thanks for rubbing it in again :-)

And I MUST apologise for calling this a bug in another discussion: I have checked some other database engines (Firebird, trying it, and MySQL, reading some specs) and they show the same behaviour. So perhaps it *is* even prescribed by the standard?

Must be just me then not getting why this makes any sense... (walking away in shame, throwing this experience in my "don't think of SQL as a real programming language" bucket)

All three answers are in fact correct.

"Returns from step 4 Returns 5 columns and 2,155 rows of data" is true - it returns 5 columns and also another column.

I'm a bit surprised to see the question asking for two answers (one about step 2, one about step 4), and only one answer option for step 2. Why not simply omit that part, present two answer options for step 4, and make us choose the correct one?
(Or, better yet, provide more answer options for step 2).

Or was the question changed to remove an error before I got here?

Nice easy question, but it really does make you think about what is happening with views.

I thought "Select *" was banned from production environments for this (and other) reasons.

Are we saying it is acceptable for View definitions with the caveat that someone remembers to update the definition after a schema change? Wouldn't a schema-bound view make that update more reliable (preventing the change to schema alerts the DBA that the view exists)

It's a good question; common enough that many would/will encounter the scenario.
I am curious how we feel about using "select *" in this way.

I do not think this was saying it was acceptable, but just used to demonstrate how the view is created. That even though * was used the SQL Engine still used a full query definition and not the column wildcard (which could logically be expected).
