MSSQL Procedure

Hello Experts!

I currently have a query which pulls user data...

Fname, lname, dob, userAcct

I also have an application that consumes that query, and writes the data to a text file (which is processed by a vendors application to create a user account in another SQL database (for realtime document management))

I want to skip the middle man by converting this query into  a stored procedure...  What I am unsure about, is once the query has been run, how can I write the retrieved rows straight to the other DB?  Crossing over to the other DB isn't the problem.  So if someone can show me how to write query results to a table, that would be great.


Thank you!

Your original query
select Fname, lname, dob, userAcct
from tbl
where <some condition>

Open in new window

Insert directly to another db (on same server)
insert into otherdb..othertable(Fname, lname, dob, userAcct)
select Fname, lname, dob, userAcct
from tbl
where <some condition>

Open in new window

Insert directly to another db (on OTHER server/instance)
insert into otherserver.otherdb.dbo.othertable(Fname, lname, dob, userAcct)
select Fname, lname, dob, userAcct
from tbl
where <some condition>

Open in new window
