Unanswered: relating tables from different databases
I am trying to relate two tables but both are from different databases. I have a database 'Current' which has a table 'case' and another database 'Org' which has a table 'employee'. I want to establish a one-to-many relationship between employee and case. I created a coulmn 'employee_key' in the case table & entered values matching the pkey of the employee table. Then I wrote a query using joins to access the table records.
select Org..employee.pkey, Current..case.assignedengineer, Current..case.pkey from Current..case join Org..employee on Current..request.employee_key=Org..employee.pkey
Although the above query works fine, there is no relation between the two tables of the two databases, I wanted to know if this is the right way to achieve what i want to or is there a way in which i can actually create a relationship between tables of two different datbases. Can anyone suggest/help???
Also, I wanted to know if i can relate 1 table of SQL Server db with another table of Oracle DB. Please help ...........
