I Have a question regarding Whether i can open Two databases using CDatabase at the Same time. I have the following problem. I have to read records from one Database And then transfer those records to a different Database. I would like to know whether this is possible in any way without closing the recordsets or the databases and opening the other connection.

I would also like to know whether i can Create a Database dynamically creating also a table Dynamically.

Thanks in Advance

Yes, there is no problem opening two databases.  Just use two CDatabase instances.  

Creating table dynamically is easy.  Execute a "create table ... " sql statement using CDatabase::ExecuteSQL.  

You may into trouble if you don't have the privilege to create tables (You didn't say what kind of database you are using, Access, Oracle, or Sybase?).

I don't think you can create database dynamically using MFC ODBC classes.  If you are using Access, you may be able to do it using MFC DAO classes.

supposing the two table have same structure.
bind proper var to each record.
for each record
   copy var value from rec1 to rec2
