Hi All,

I was wondering if it was at all possible in SQL Server to query one database and insert the results into a table in another database in one go?

Thanks,

OS

No both on different servers.

Is it still possible?

Thanks,

yes you can but you will have to use OpenRowset for your Select query. Check http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190312.aspx

if you can establish a linked server connection on Server A to Server B
Then you can use the below code to do that

INSERT INTO <your Table>
SELECT * FROM [Server B].<Data base on server B>.<schema>.<Table on Server B>

Open in new window


Establishing a linked server is an easy process and a one time job...
You can follow the below tutorial to do the same
