How do I grab two database record and display them on a single go? For example I'm trying to draw two database userid + password.

1. Database01 - table name: user - column: userid/password
2. Database02 - table name: user - column: userid/password

Can I use view to pull both of the tables from different database and put them on a single SQL command? I tried but it keep coming with INNER JOIN function which I don't need. Any suggestions?

Hi,
  You can use the following sql to retrieve different records from different databases in a single go

select dbid from udb01.usr.defect
union
select dbid from udb02.usr.defect

where dbid is a column name, udb01/udb02 are the 2 diff databases, usr is the user table user and defect is the table name.

Use union to get the data.

You will need to modify the sql to get the desired result.

Cheers,
Kaushik

Use <Database>.dbo.<Table> on Query
Ex:
SELECT userid, password
FROM Database01.dbo.user
UNION ALL
SELECT userid, password
FROM Database02.dbo.user

OR you can use join !

CREATE VIEW MyVIEW AS
SELECT userid, password
FROM Database01..user
UNION ALL
SELECT userid, password
FROM Database02..user


Now

Select * from MyView
