Marcellus writes "I have been attempting to use DTS to update a database (A) table (AT) from another database (B) table (BT). The two tables need to sync only 3 columns and all rows. I can easily pull the information from database A but the updating of B has been problematic it just doesnt appear to work at. I am currently knee deep in SQL books to figure if I can do this or not. Any help be extremely grateful.

I think I am missing a key point using data driven query it pulls the data I connect the fields I want updated wrote and update query below and still nothing?

query for update under QUeries -> update:

Could you show us the table definition? Could you also show us some sample data and what you are trying to do. Once we have that, we'll be able to help you out.

You don't need DTS for this also. If this needs to be scheduled, just setup a job to run the UPDATE statement.
