T-SQL Temp Table Results Between Databases

Hello Experts,

This may be a silly question but I would like help with the following scenario.

Database 1
SELECT *
INTO #tmptable1
FROM table 1

[b][/Database 2b]
TRUNCATE TABLE X
INSERT INTO TABLE X
SELECT * FROM #tmptable1 in Database1
INTO TABLE X in Database2

Is this even possible?

Thanks

Yup, it is. Exactly like that, assuming that you have sufficient privileges and no foreign constraints exist pointing to table X.

Yes it is possible in Single Session with proper access.

Also use 4 part name everytime.

Try something like..

--

SELECT * INTO #tmptable1
FROM servername.database1.schema.table1

TRUNCATE TABLE servername.Database2.schema.X

INSERT INTO TABLE servername.Database2.schema.X
SELECT * FROM #tmptable1
