If the database that houses the view data is available over HTTP, you could use the ?ReadViewEntries CGI to get the view data in an XML format, then use one of the available parsers to parse and build the information in a Rich Text field. Another option is to open the view and just bring in the HTML and make the items in the Rich Text field a MIME format so that it will render in the Notes client, kind of like and HTML email does. This way it is already formatted in a table structure.
As for code to do this, I don’t have any, in theory both should work. Look for the the GetDocumentByURL method, it returns a web page in a document format which can be easier to parse.
