Creating Views, choice of data sources ?

Today I came to create a new Calculation View and hit an issue I've not noticed before - which worries me !

I hit the 'add objects' button and typed in the name of another Calculation View that I want to use as a source in this new one.

So let's call it 'myCalculationView'.

The results came back thus:

  • myMainPackage.mySubFolder/myCalculationView (_SYS_BIC)
  • myCalculationView (myMainPackage.mySubFolder)

Now the first one is pointing to the Catalog Column View, and is what I was expecting to see, and makes full logical sense to me.

But the second one ?

The path is surely pointing to the Content Designer object - and I cannot work out why I would choose that over the first ?

Could someone help me understand why both are offered as objects to add to a View ?

What would be the implications of the second compared to the first ?

Many thanks for any clarification
