when adding view to screen specify the type as aggregate view.But Before that you should create the parent category.then add this parent category to aggregate view.

Parent category for Aggregate view is not required. If there is a parent category for an aggregate view, then aggregate view will appears as a link in the view drop-down list in applet headers, or it will appears as a link in the link bar below screen tabs.
Link is used for Master Detail View of two BCs. where as MVL is used to view the child records using MVG. MVL uses Link to get the records from the child BC.

Pre Default Value will be defaulted when new record is created. Post Default Value will be defaulted if there is no value specified for the field. so, Pre Default Value will be stored in the Database. harsha: you can add quistions by clicking the hyperlink on the above bar "Ask Quistion".

Whenever a record gets created Predefault value takes prescedence and get sets, however suppose if you now blank out that value and step off the record Post default value will be set on that field.So postdefault value get sets when you actually save the record and field should be blank
