Is it possible to use Execute SQL across databases not just tables but another database that exists on the same server.  If so how would I reference it in an SQL statement.  Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

 

Best,

First let's get the lingo right:

- "Execute SQL" is a script step meant to push data to any ODBC compliant database

- "ExecuteSQL()" is a function call that can only SELECT from internal FM tables

I'm assuming you mean ExecuteSQL()?

If so then you can touch any table from any file, provided that you have TO in the file where you will be call the function.  ExecuteSQL() always needs a TO to work with.

Ahhh.  Thank you so much.
