always work) to make it big enough for all my labels to show up? THANKS!!

I created 2 database views. Each of them uses 256 database tables.
From every database table only one column is used in the select list of the

Each database table has 5 rows. The database tables have not any foreign
keys and indexes.
Both views works fine. When I use the database views in a query like this:
