Hey there,

Is there a way to create a view that contains two joint tables from different databases. and if so, Where would that view(object) be created/located.(which DB or it'd be a sysobject?)?

Thank you in advance!

either DB but most likely the one that the app that needs to use it is logged into. you would then qualify the outside table with with the 3 part name...


There are some issues with doing stuff like this. something cross database ownership chaining or permissions or something. Too tired... Head might fall into the monitor...
