Hi I want to fetch data from MS SQL DB of a Remote server using Linked Servers. I have linked the servers. I am fetching data as follows.

select * from [IP of server].[Database Name].[dbo].[Table Name]

But I want to get [IP address] from a variable and use it.

Ex: Declare @ServIP varchar(50)

set @ServIP = 'IP of server'

select * from [@ServIP].[Database Name].[dbo].[Table Name]

I'm getting error If I use variable.

How can I do it?

  • Why are you using the IP address? – ChrisBint Jul 19 '12 at 15:02
  • I'm accessing Remote Server's data. I need to mention which Server. – Ethan Jul 19 '12 at 15:25

Dynamic SQL:

declare @ServIP varchar(50) = 'IP of server'
declare @dsql varchar(1024)
set @dsql = 'select * from ' + quotename(@ServIP) + '.DbName.dbo.TableName'
exec (@dsql)
