TSQL to query a linked AS400 server?

TSQL to query a linked AS400 server?

TSQL to query a linked AS400 server?

I have set up an AS400 as a linked server and can see all the relevant tables from within Enterprise Manager but do not know how to query them from Query Analyzer.  We are running SQL 7.  I know that I need to use a four part name with the following syntax


Linked server name is the name I used to link it?
Catalog is the name of the AS400 library?
Schema is ?????  dbo on SQL what is it on AS400??
Object name is table name?

Any help appreciated.

RE: TSQL to query a linked AS400 server?

The schema is the name of the library in which the table resides.

RE: TSQL to query a linked AS400 server?

Hi markth

I'm no expert but I've just been through a similar exercise-

We have an AS400 called SERV
On SERV is a library called TSTDT
and in that library is a file called SEG1A

-which only gives three of the four parts.
I linked to SERV from SQL7.0 and called the linked server SERV also.

Now from within Query Analyser I use the syntax-
which works.

I'm not sure whether AS400 connections always use the server name for the Catalog or whether our AS400 was set up that way.

Hope this helps.
