Hey all,

I guess before I go into the main details. I should ask the (silly) question first. Here goes.

Can an SQL query be written to
select all records from a table in a db on a local server ... then
insert(ed) into a table in a db on a remote server ... and update(d).

Here let me say, all is connected and working fine.

I can connect and manage the dbases from the following...

SQL Server Management Studio

Visual Web Developer 2005

and last ( and definitely least)

my host sql administrator manager.

I have been attempting to structure a query in VWD to accomplish the above.

I have all pertinent info concerning both local and remote server as I can open and modify datarows in each table.

And Yes. I can manually copy and paste records from local to remote database.

But there has to be a quicker way ... (I know science has progressed that far

Anyway, if any knows the syntax for a query to accomplished this (if it is possible).

I would be soooo happy ... oh yeah, and swear eternal loyalty.

best regards,

You can either link the servers or use DTS (or SSIS if you're using 2005). Look those up in the help file Books Online.

If the data volume low, you can setup the remote server as a linked server and access it by using four-part addressing: ServerName(or IP).DatabaseName.dbo.TableName .

All SQL is the same as within the database.

For volume transfer, as recommended by the previous writer.
