If IB Expert uses the same names in the hints as QuickDesk, then the
caption of the button is "Compile"(this is probably where the word
compiling comes from). QuickDesk runs the "CREATE VIEW" script when
the user clicks on the "Compile" button. But, the user has to commit
if Firebird or Interbase didn't return any errors, after executing(but
not committing) the script on the server. This way a person can still
rollback changes(for whatever reason) after the DDL has been executed.
