There is no limit to the number of views available for letters; however, each letter can only have a maximum of one view per level. Each view is also currently limited to 100 fields per view.
Additionally, the use of the 5 types of views is limited by the type of the letter as selected on the Letter Info tab:

Please note that the aliasing of database view fields is required for ALL fields.
