comment Is there a way to prevent losing metadata when generating a spatial view in ArcSDE 10.1?
I was talking about adding metadata to the resulting feature class, e.g. VW_Roads (VW = View). When the view is dropped by SQL command, the associated metadata is deleted as well.

comment How to create button that calculates acres on selected polygon features?
@spark I've been wanting to do this too. In 9.3.1 I had a tool that did this well, but have not found a good alternate. I'll work on something and hopefully write an answer.
