Hello
I want to create a recordset from two similar tables that are in two different databases that have two different connections to them.

Is there a way to create a recordset from this two tables even if they are in two different connections?

or

must I create two recordsets and then join them in one?
If so what is the fastest way to join or copy a recordset to another?

Thanks

Why would you want that if I can ask a stupid question here.... I mean...it doesn't matter how many recordsets you need...you can reference them so why join them into one? Sounds like wasted code to me...

The problem DreamMaster is:
I need to populate a combobox with the records of this two tables.
Then if the user don't find the record he wants in this comboxbox, the program must add in one of the tables the new name he has just write in the combobox.

Did I made myself clear?

Thanks

Which database are you using? In access this is simple, in SQL server it is not that difficult, other databases may be more difficult.

I'm using Access and one of the tables have about 2000 records.
I've tried already to open two connections for two recordsets and then use
---------------------
rs1.open sql1, cnn1
rs2.open sql2, cnn2
for i=1 to rs2.recordcount
  rs1.addnew
  rs1!field=rs2!field
  rs1.update
next i
---------------------
and it is too slow

Thanks

I think you should use

while not rs2.eof

instead of rs2.recordcount

so that it does not have to count the number of records first.

Ok, if it is access then you can do the following:

sqlString = "Select * From MyTable Union Select * From MyTable1 In '\\server\share\folder\MyMDB.mdb'"
rs.Open sqlString,Connection

This will return a recordset combining the results from both tables.
