Querying tables from different databases

Hello,

I am quite new to ms-sql and I have a problem : I want to create an SQL
request which would copy serveral records from a table in a given database
to another table (with exactly the same structure) in another database
(theses two tables and databases already exist).

Could you please tell me how to do this ? I dont know how to access two
different databases in a single SQL request.

Thank you for you help.

You can use 3-part names to qualify the object references:

INSERT INTO MyDatabase1.dbo .MyTable1
SELECT *
FROM MyDatabase2.dbo .MyTable2

Hope this helps.

You can use 3-part naming like :

USE database1
GO
INSERT tbl(col1, col2, ...coln)
SELECT col1, col2, ..coln
FROM database2.dbo.t bl ;

use northwind
go
select * from pubs.dbo.author s
go
Basically you need to use the db name and the object owner.
Thank you for you help.
