Linked Server

Dear Experts,

I am trying to import tables from the linked server to my local DB using Ms SQL server 2008 R2. My linked server is reading DB2 tables but I don't see the linked server object at all when trying to import any.

Any advice?

Regards,

try to
exec sp_tables_ex yourlinkedservername

sp_tables_ex
Returns table information about the tables from the specified linked server.
