Dear Experts, I am using as400 db2 and Access in my vb.net application and need to use both for inner join query. I dont want to link the db2 table to Access. Is there any way to do it without importing the table from one db to another?

Hi Haqita,

How much data are you dealing with?

Hi Kalpesh,

Recheck your link.  That clearly does not answer the poster's question.

Hi Kent,

the db2 As400 and the access tables' inner join has  approx. 2000 records.

Hi Hagit,

As momi indicates, there are third-party tools that will do this, but I don't know of any freeware that will.  Your choices would seem to be to buy the third-party tool or configure Access to use the AS/400 table(s).

Is the data on the AS/400 static?  That is, can you import the table once and have it at your disposal?

Hi Kent, Yes that is what I decided to do for now. I import the table from AS400 to my access file.
