Create SQL View in another database from 2 tables in existing database. Mdsh 1013

I have two databases A & B. I need to create a view in database A from 2 tables in database B. My objective is to have Name, MiddleName, Last Name, and badge number in the view which will be located in database A.
______________________________
Use A
go
_______________________________
create view EmployeeWork
AS
      Select B.dbo.inf_employee.Name,
               B.dbo.inf_employee.middlename,
               B.inf_employee.lastname,
               B.dbo.inf_badge_repo.cardnum
      from B.dbo.inf_employee
      INNER JOIN B.dbo.inf_employee on B.dbo.inf_employee.badge = B.dbo.inf_badge_repo.badge
go
__________________________________________

When I run this code, I get the following error messages " Msg 1013, Level 16, State 1, Procedure EmployeeWork, Line 3
The objects "B.dbo.inf_employee" and "B.dbo.inf_employee" in the FROM clause have the same exposed names. Use correlation names to distinguish them.

you need to use aliases  see this article
https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/11135/Why-should-I-use-aliases-in-my-queries.html
a different alias for the same table, and it will work

My issue turned out to be the method used to join the tables. I had to use the CAST function to convert the linking fields to an integer value. Final code that worked:
use databasename
go
create view EmployeeWork
AS
      Select A.table1.Name As FirstName
               ,A.table1.MiddleName
               ,A.table1.LastName
               ,A.table1.BirthDate
               ,A.table1.Address
               ,A.table1.ZipCode
               ,A.table1.City
               ,A.table1.State
               ,A.table1.HireDate
               ,A.table1.DismissalDate
               ,A.table1.Image as photo
               ,A.table1.badge
               ,A.table1.code
               ,A.table2.name as DeptName
               ,A.table3.cardnum
      from A.table1
      inner JOIN A.table3 on cast(A.table3.badge as int) = cast(A.table1.badge as int)
      inner join A.table2 on A.table2.id = A.table1.groupid


go
