    Unanswered: Cross-server SELECT query

    Hi,

    Recently the powers-that-be migrated the largest databases from one server to another, more powerful server while keeping some support data on the original server. My problem: I need to run queries on tables spanning both database servers. Unfortunately, I can't find any documentation on how to do this. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks!

    lookup linked servers and sp_addlinkedserver.
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.
