Subject Re: [IBO] Switching between views?

Your application will need to control which view it access by its own logic.
There is nothing in InterBase that will automate this for you.

If it were me doing things here I would probably use a single stored
procedure instead of a bunch of views. Either that or I would just use a
SELECT statement with an input parameter.
