I&#039;ve been reading in my SQL Server reference books and searching the all mighty Internet for answers. <BR>I need to link two tables and I can&#039;t get it to work. The code I&#039;m using looks correct based on all the examples I saw, but I&#039;ve been getting two errors, one is that the server already exists, and the other is just a generic error to tell me it didn&#039;t work. <BR><BR>I&#039;m not using stored procedures and I can&#039;t use Enterprise Manager to set up the linked tables, it has to happen on the fly only when a specific method is called. <BR><BR>any help would be appreciated. <BR>Thanks
