Query Between Servers
Hey Guys,

In SQL Server, I am trying to figure out how to write a query between two different tables on two different databases, with the databases located on two different servers. For instance, I want to join table a in database x located on server 1 with table b located in database y on server 2. Any idea how that query would look in Enterprise Manager, and/or how would that query work in a vb.net application.

In SQL Server 2005 you can select across databases (not 2000), not sure about across servers. I will try across servers tomorrow at work where I have two SQL 2005 boxes.

There is no problem selecting across databases in 2000, you just prefix the tablename with database-name and owner-name like this:

Select * from [databasename].[Ownername].[tablename]

If you need to select from another physical server, you could set up a linked server and then do the select like this:

Select * from [LinkedServerName].[databasename].[Ownername].[tablename]
