Hi,

I want to do a join operation in the vb code.

The problem however is that , one table is in Sybase database and the other one is in Sql server database.

Can I do a join operation like this or not ??


Thanks & Regds

Try linking the Sybase database to the SQL Server database, then you can do a join with a SQL Server connection with the following syntax:

Select Table1.*, SybaseTable.*
From   Table1
       Inner Join Sybase..Table2 SybaseTable On Table1.Column1=SybaseTable.Column2

If that doesn't work post a question with a link to this one on the Sybase and SQL forums.

Try something more like this....


Select table1.*, SybaseTable1.*
From Table1, SybaseTable1
Where table1.key = SybaseTable1.key


What this will do is similar to the InnerJoin but in a way that will allow non-connected databases communicate. It isn't as effecient but is really your only option in this case.
