execute multiple queries

my application requires the user to type in a parcel number. With that parcel Id I would like to search one table and a view. Basically the one table is applications already processed according to parcel Id. The view(sql server 2000) is data from a another DataBase that applications have not been done on it. I want the app to search the table, if no entries are found(according to the Parcel Id user typed in) then search the view(there will always be data associated with that parcel Id in the view)If there is app already the use can review it, if there is not the user can create a new app from the basic info found in the "view".
My view works fine, My table works fine. I just can't get them to work together.

From what you said I understand that your table and view are not in the same database. SO,

Just use separate 'connection strings ' for the 2 databases. Open the table and view separately and check.
