Select from different data sources on a command

I have a command on one data connection and I have to reference  a table that only exists on a different data connection for the same report.

It gives me a message for table ro view does not exist because it doesn't find that table on that connection. WHat am I doing wrong, how can I reference a field from a different data connection. I tried playing with links but it did not work. Is there a way to do select statemenets on the select expert? it doesn't have the from and where keywords...

You can't.

You can try using the Select Expert by setting the fields you want to link together =
The Select Expert text is the WHERE clause for the SQL.

Remember, when you are building a COMMAND, you are working within that data connection so you can only reference objects that fall within the data connection.

create database link from database where you are connected to other database from where you want to access table, call it dblnk

then use,

select * from table@dblnk

Agree with comments made by both mlmcc and POracle.  If you're using a SQL Command, you are limited by the constraints of what's available through SQL and your data connection.  DB linking might be a solution.
