my system has 2 db's - sql server 2000 & db2 @ separate locations. i have a select query which needs 2 pick up consolidated data from both the tables. also the schema on the db2 has minor changes when compared with the schema on sql server 2000.
while searching on microsoft i came across the technique of creating a linked server. would this be possible 2 implement in my scenario. also would in this case, be advised that i create another view in the db2 server which has changed the db2 schema to the sql server schema format??
