The newly created table view doesn't display in the specified directory


After creating a Table View, it does not appear in ArcCatalog.


Table views are the table equivalent of a feature layer. The Make Table View tool creates a table in memory. ArcCatalog does not display these tables, but they can be used as inputs to other geoprocessing tools in the session in which you are working. Once you exit the application, the tables in memory are removed.
