Code Explanation:

The given SQL statement creates a view called "nameorders" that shows the column order number, purchase amount, the salesman ID, the salesman name, and the customer name for each order.
The WHERE clause filters the results to only include rows where the "customer_id" in the 'orders' table matches the "customer_id" in the 'customer' table and the "salesman_id" in the 'orders' table matches the "salesman_id" in the 'salesman' table.
