You can now update to any number of tables in a view. You will need Oracle 8 and you will need to write instead of triggers on the view.
Check out the documentation to see how to do this.

Also, updatable views are very useful. However, only one of the tables can be updated in any one view.

Sybrand, I don't think you needed to be quite that hard on Kenny. It takes a while for people to get the hang of list etiquette.
