I need to SELECT * INTO from one database to another

Last Modified: 2013-12-17
I use C#, Access and System.Data.OleDb. And I would like to use SELECT * INTO that copies from one database to another.

How do I do that exactly? I can do it easily in the same database. But how, using SQL, do I preface the target table name with the database name, and path?
