If all the databases are in the same instance then it would be:

select * from first_table f
inner join database_name..second_table s on f.[column_name] = s.[columns_name]
inner join database_name..third_table t on s.[column_name] = t.[columns_name]

If they are in separate instances then you would need to add them as linked servers and then it would be:

select * from first_table f
inner join linked_server.database_name.dbo.second_table s on f.[column_name] = s.[columns_name]
inner join linked_server.database_name.dbo.third_table t on s.[column_name] = t.[columns_name]

Yes, They are in the same "instance".

Here is what works for 2 tables from 2 different databases..

select SKU_VIEW.ITEM,
       SKU_VIEW.WWGMFRNAME,
       SKU_VIEW.WWGMFRNUM,
       WWGDESC_ALL.dbo.WwgDescRich.RICHTEXT
      from ITEM_DISPLAY.dbo.SKU_VIEW INNER JOIN WWGDESC_ALL.dbo.WwgDescRich ON
ITEM_DISPLAY.dbo.SKU_VIEW.ITEM = WWGDESC_ALL.dbo.WwgDescRich.ITEM


I would like to do the same with another table from another databases.

Database =   XrefInfo
Table name =  dbo.XrefDetail
pk column =     ITEM
Field I need in the query =  REDBOOKNUM

Sorry ,  Guess I should have added this to the question..

Thanks
