ADO - Getting data from two databases

Using ADO I have established connection with NorthWinds database in MS-SQL Server. Without connecting again is there any way to access a table in pubs database using the SQL SELECT Statement.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

from NORTHWIND.[tableowner1].Table1 t1

Select *

Thank you very much gwamb.

If you can please let me know one more thing.

Will the same technique work with Oracle databases as well?
I don't know, but this is ANSI SQL, so I hope it will work with Oracle.
