I have a stored procedure in SQL 2000 but need to join a table in SQL 2005.
Is there a way to use a connection string in a stored procedure?

Can't you add the SQL 2005 server as a linked server on your 2000 server?

I got this from the internet:

>EXEC sp_addlinkedserver SERVER_01
>GO
>/* The following command links 'sa' login on SERVER_02 with the 'sa' login of >SERVER_01 */
>EXEC sp_addlinkedsrvlogin @rmtsrvname = 'SERVER_01', @useself = 'false', >@locallogin = 'sa', @rmtuser = 'sa', @rmtpassword = 'sa password of SERVER_01'
>GO
>SELECT a.title_id
>FROM SERVER_01.pubs.dbo.titles a
>INNER JOIN SERVER_02.pubs.dbo.titles b
>ON a.title_id = b.title_id
>GO

Is this what u mean?
Is this a once off procedure or should i add it to every stored procedure?

Yes, that's it. You just use it once to add the server to your linked servers, after that you can refer to it as much as you like.
