Linked Server

Posted on 2013-02-04
Last Modified: 2013-03-02
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?
