Something like..


Yes, just as you normally would with your insert into statement. Just make sure that you qualify the statements by specifying the dB name.

For example, in the select statement, SELECT FieldName1, FieldName2 from DB1.dbo.tableName

thanks for reply but, how to make connection with two databases then?

Ok, the assumption was that both databases were on the same server. If this is not the case, you would have to depend on your DB to allow for connections to a remote DB. In the case of MSSQL, you can create "linked servers" so that when you refer to the second DB, you can access it even if its on a remote server.
