I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

the easiest way, assuming dbA and dbB
create a link from tables in dbB in dbA , or vice versa
you can then treat the link table like local table in your query

In addition to linking one of the tables to the other's database, you can also write a query that references the external (not attached) table using the IN keyword.
