Any idea on how to use JOIN between tables from two different databases? The databases are on the same server. I tried to follow this syntax, but I couldn't get it to work.

Thanks in advance.

Did you follow the syntax correctly using a three part name?

SELECT a.col1, b.col2 FROM
database1..tablea a INNER JOIN database2..tableb b
ON a.col3 = b.col3

Also, the user must have select permissions on both tables, which also means the user must exist in both databases.


Where there's a will, I want to be in it.
