Hi,

I have a view including select statement 1. I want to re-write it to avoid hard-coded elements. So, can I re-use the name of the view in my select statement, like statement 2.

1:
select name from table
where view_name = 'KST_V_C_BOVENKTALUD_RW'

2:
select name from table
where view_name = this.name

No, unfortunately objects in Oracle have no knowledge of their own characteristics.
In your case however, it would not make that big a difference, since you have to hardcode the name of the view in the definition anyway.. (create view <viewname>...)
