Hi - All
I need to whilst working on one database (sql Query Analyser), create a view in another database and store it in the other database. I am thinking that this will be a distributed query - advice please.
Was trying to run something like
Use <Database A>
code
code
CREATE VIEW <Database B>.dbo.Test_View AS select * from <Database B>.dbo.<table>

Thanks

you cannot create a view in another database. you have to issue a  USE <databaseB> in between (with GO statement in between)
