Default Transfer data

Hi,
    We would like to transfer data from one SQL Server database to another, both the database are sitting in different servers and are of the same version SQL Server 2000. Please let me know the method to transfer data, should I be using DTS or is there any other simple method that can be used.In Oracle this could be achived using Database link, wanting to know if there was something equivalent to that in SQL Server. We are looking of transferring only 10,000 records one time and on a daily basis we would like to transfer about 100 records.

Thanks in advance.

You can do server links in SQL, the same as Oracle. But DTS would be the best way to transfer data, as that is what it is meant to do.

DTS will be one of the best option to try and also possible for scheduling based on your requirements.

Right, DTS will be the best option to move data, but linkserver can be achieved. Look up sp_linkserver in books online.
