Subject:query on tables in second database when connection was made for first database
View as plain text  
I have tried the method to query tables in other database (B) when a
connection is made for
a database (A) as suggested in the "Re: join across databases". It did
not give me any error
nor it gave me any meaningful result. Any thought?

Databases: A and B.
Table in B: region_xref

mysql> use A
mysql> select * from B.region_xref where B.region_xref.main_id=20483
    -> go
Empty set (0.00 sec)                              <==== Did not work
across database

mysql> use B
> Database changed
mysql> select * from B.region_xref where B.region_xref.main_id=20483
    -> go                                      <============= It works
from the same database
+---------+-----------+
| main_id | region_id |
+---------+-----------+
|   20483 |         3 |
|   20483 |        10 |
|   20483 |         1 |
|   20483 |         5 |
|   20483 |         7 |
|   20483 |         8 |

Yes, it is.  You can find the information in the manual.  In short,
you prefix the table name with the database name:

SELECT l, p FROM db1.tableA, db2.tableB WHERE db1.tableA.m >
db2.tableB.q
