I have a task to update records in multiple tables on multiple database.


I need to update

1)Employee table in ASM database
2)Manager Table in ACD database.

My doubt is for each database i need to create seperate connection or is it possible to use same connection for multiple databases?

Hi, are these schemas stored in the same database?
If yes, then it is possible for most databases to create a database user that can access both schemas.

In that case, you can do with one connection. You will gave to put the schema name in front of the table name to make it work.


insert into ASM.Employee (....
insert into ACD.Manager (....

(note that you are confusing us a bit in your post: the title says: 'multiple schemas', the detail says 'multiple databases'.)
