Hi,<BR><BR>I have a problem linking my database servers. I can link two servers running SQL 7.0 but the problem is with linking a 7.0 server to 6.5. Can anyone tell me what could be the problem. There are no firewalls in-between. Could the problem be with the permissions?? Please let me know if there is anything special that i need to do to connect two database servers running different versions of SQL other than the standard procedure.
