I have been coding as T-SQL for many years. I never have to use view ever in my career. I do not see in my near future I am using Views. I am able to achieve same database architecture goal using either using Third Normal tables, Replications or other database design work around.SQL Views have many many restrictions. There are few listed below. I love T-SQL but I do not like using Views.
