I have a SQL 2005 database and a SQL 2008 database. I want a simple SQL statement that will create/copy a table and its contents from 2005 into 2008 that I can use in a C# program. I know I can export using Mgmt Studio but I want to do in a a program. I am able to perform a SELECT INTO [MyDatabase2].[dbo].[mytable] SELECT * FROM [Mydatabase1].[dbo].[mytable] when they exist in different databases in the same machine and only in the same Database Instance but how do I across multiple instances or multiple machines.
Can anyone help ?
