On the User Interface (Tasks) there is a possibility to Create View... Then you can make a design of a view (like a query) and then at the end Save that view. Returning back to the main User Interface, I do not see this saved View. Nothing found

How to access, edit or view, a saved views?

This is with an embedded Firebird- database with Base Libreoffice Version: (x64) on Windows 10. And this is not a migration from HSQLDB

If you saved the view with a name, the view should be available in "Tables".

Yes, but only after saving, closing and reopening the odb-file.

For me, saving the view ranges. Try the next higher LO version

Should only need to refresh the tables list. On main screed select Tables section. Then from menu View->Refresh Tables.

That was it! Refresh tables...but.... You cannot edit a view definition in the graphic environment of Base. Therefore I created and saved a Query. Then with the "Queries-list" , I right-click on the saved query and then "Create as view". LibreOffice system gives me a warning: "No table format could be found", but I go on; when I click on Tools (Table Filter) I find that view as hidden. Finally: checked it (un-hide), then Refresh tables...and of course after each step: save.
