I have a question a bit like this open already, but since I need the answer now I will try to ask it again.
http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qManageQuestion.jsp?ta=delphi&qid=20144514

I try this example: http://community.borland.com/article/0,1410,25204,00.html
It shows how to move data betweem two databases, using two TDatabases with databasenames: aaa,bbb and one Query with this SQL statement
INSERT INTO ":aaa:Country" SELECT * FROM ":bbb:Country"

I get this error: No such table or correlation name, when I try to execute it.

If I use the aliases instead of the databasenames it works fine, but I then have to enter the password and username explicitly, how do I remove this login-dialog.

I uses Interbase, I know that interbase doesn't support heterogeneous JOIN and that BDE performs the function instead.

Did you set both TDatabase.LoginPrompt to false?

Hi glx2k,

here is sample procedure that able open database without login dialog.

!!!Important!!!!! All TQuery and TTable inside your app. must be inactive (active = false).

procedure OpenDatabase(DBName, User, Password: String);
var
  D: TDatabase;
begin
  D := Session.FindDatabase(DBName);
  if D = nil
    then D:=TDatabase.Create(Session);
  D.DatabaseName := DBName;
  D.LoginPrompt := false;
  D.Params.Clear;
  D.Params.Add('USER NAME=' + User);
  D.Params.Add('PASSWORD=' + Password);
  D.Open;
end;

procedure TForm1.SpeedButton1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  OpenDatabase('IBWORK', 'SYSDBA', 'masterkey');
  Query1.Open;
end;

Hmm Igor ... it seems to work, I will test it a bit more, but great news so far :)

I don't understand why it works, I have tried the same thing with a TDatabase at design time.
When I try to set DatabaseName I get a duplicate database error, but your code works fine.

I think your TQuery must have the Database property blanked (no Database selected) to allow you use heterogeneus joins.
Did you tried it?
Good Luck
