I created a new database called Temp, I used Task/Import to import a table from excel. The table is there and I can query the table and see it's contents. When I try to do a join on the table I get the error below.

Msg 7202, Level 11, State 2, Line 1
Could not find server 'Temp' in sys.servers. Verify that the correct server name was specified. If necessary, execute the stored procedure sp_addlinkedserver to add the server to sys.servers.

The problem isn't with the server, it with the query - can you post some or all of the query so we can troubleshoot it? It sounds like you're using an incorrect name: server.database.schema.object. My guess is that the join should be "JOIN dbo.Temp ON..."

Correct. I have the column name CompanyPartMasterId as part of the reference to my table.

INNER JOIN Company.dbo.Plating.CompanyPartMasterId spm1 on spm1.CompanyPartMasterId = spm.Company_Part_Master_ID

So you took out the column in the join?
INNER JOIN Company.dbo.Plating spm1
    ON spm1.CompanyPartMasterId = spm.Company_Part_Master_ID
