This interface provides access to the table used for display purposes for layers and standalone tables. This table can be different from the table of the layer's data source in that it may contain joined fields. For example the table that you access through IFeatureLayer::FeatureClass will not have joined fields, but the table you access through IDisplayTable::DisplayTable will.

DisplayTable is a RelQueryTable. In addition to providing access to this object, IDisplayTable has methods and a property to perform searches and selections on the display table. If you want your code to be generic enough to work on different types of layers and standalone tables, you should perform selections and searches using the methods on IDisplayTable rather than similar methods on other interfaces.
