Hi,

I'm using reports 10g.There is a requirement wherein my source of the report ( tables/views) maybe pointing to more than one database i.e. table A maybe present in database DB1 and table B in DB2. Since the table B is very huge, it is present in a seperate databse DB2.

I need to link both these tables in my report.Is it possible to design a report wherein the tables/views?

I've developed reports wherein the tables are from a single database and not sure if the possibility of referencing tables from more than one database exists in 10G.

Please help.

In a schema located in any of those databases create a database link to another database and a view as
CREATE VIEW tables_united AS
SELECT * FROM table_in_this_schema
UNION ALL
SELECT * FROM table_in_another_database@database_link;
Base your report on a view instead of a table.

Also, you might consider using a materialized view instead of an ordinary view which will might make report run much faster than the one over a database link.
