Views are similar to tables in the way that data is represented, however views do not support updates. Data sources that are represented as a view are typically read-only data sources. Often a stored procedure is available to update the data if such functionality is applicable to the data source.
Queries can be executed against a view as if it was a normal table and the data that comes back is similar in that regard. To find out more about tables and stored procedures, please navigate to their corresponding entries in this help document.
Views are composed of Columns and Pseudo-Columns.

|Documents||A view for the documents contained in Google Docs. Note that the ID located in Google Docs is the ID that will need to be used for deleting the document, even if it is a Spreadsheet.|
|MailMessages||List Google mail messages.|
|Spreadsheets||A view that displays all Google spreadsheets. Note that the ID returned in this view will be different than the ID returned for the same entry in the Documents table. The ID obtained from the Spreadsheets view is used to make updates to, query, and execute other Spreadsheet specific operations.|
