There is no T-SQL syntax support for OPEN VIEW. You can use the SQL Server Management Studio to issue a command that is running "SELECT * FROM view" in the background.

Thanks a lot Grant.The reason I asked this question is I am trying to copy information from a column and paste it in a tool called 7edit(tool for reading hl7 messages). If I copy date from a physical table or a view the 7edit tool wont parse the string.But If I copy information from open view command then 7edit dosent give any problem. So, I was a bit curious.

Sounds like the difference in output. You can try varying the results from a query too. There's a button at the top that will change the output to text instead of a grid. Experiment a little.

Differnce in output may be the issue. I tried output to text to but only if i copy from an open view then it works..sql server is sometimes funny..

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
