On the same MS SQL 2005 server, I want to access tables in a different DB. The DB my code is in, for example, is Prothera. The other DB is MOM. So my stored procs and table value functions that I'm using are in Prothera. So I'm accessing tables in Prothera and in MOM.  thx

Just fully qualify your table references, e.g.,SELECT *FROM DB_Name.dbo.Table_Name
