What is the use of a linked server?

Posted 26 June 2012 - 01:49 AM

I have been playing around with a ODBC connection and have managed to create a linked server. The main reason of me doing this was ideally to create a actual database from this linked server which from my knowledge can not be done. I first thought it would be easy if i were to extract the data i needed via excell and link the sheets to access. Due to the fact that Access had prblems extracting the information via the same odbc connection. But then i figured i should be able to do it with ms sql server.
From a actual linked server apart from writing queries to extract data what else could be done.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0
