If I alter a table for an increase in existing column lenght, then after an ALTER TABLE is executed, is a Drop View and a new CREATE VIEW for that table required?

ALTER TABLE does not affect any view that references the table being altered.
This includes views that have an "*" in their SELECT list.
You must drop and re-create those views if you wish them to return the new columns.
