We use Intuit Quickbase to operate several independent databases and related applications in the HR dept of a large, public-sector organization. Instead of the processing team having to independently check each one for action requests, I want to create an independent application which each of the others can feed to. Is it possible for one QB application to essentially make a copy of a form and send it to another? Or create linked tables across applications/databases?

I am advanced lay-user with some access to true developers for specific tasks.

Since you are reading the data, you can look into the capabilities of the Quickbooks SDK and specifically the QODBC driver which my understanding is can be used to setup linked servers on MS SQL Server.  If action requests are querable, you could use the MS SQL Server to aggregate the resultset from all the Quickbooks servers and present in one report to user.

User indicated limited technical understanding, but answer was written in such a way as was difficult to understand. Additionally, the answer referenced QuickBooks, an entirely different product than QuickBase, but the answer still seemed to apply
