I need to perform INNER JOIN between 2 SQL queries, but that query would have to access 2 MySQL databases located on their own servers.

Small example might explain better the problem I face:
select * 
from Table1,        -- Table1 is located on server
INNER JOIN Table2   -- Table2 is located on server
on Table1.Id = Table2.Id;

  • MFC and ODBC are used for database access
  • I haven't used ODBC, nor MFC for database programming before
  • application is a legacy one, so I can not use C++ 11 or newer
  • Visual Studio 2008 is used

If further information is required please leave a comment.


If using m_strFilter[^] with the second CRecordset is possible, can you instruct me how to do it (again, I have no prior experience with MFC and ODBC)?

I will accept C++ solution as well, but remember that I may not use C++ 11 or newer, since the application is a legacy one.

What I have tried:

This SO post[^] suggest usage of FEDERATED ENGINE.

I am reluctant to use this approach since it has poor performance, according to various comments in the post.

Other option would be to perform both queries separately, and filter recordsets in code.

I have successfully executed separate queries, but m_strFilter accepts fixed string only, not CRecordset.

While writing this question, I am trying to figure out how to bypass the above limitation.

Solution 1

You create 2 connections in your program; one to each server.

Query one; then query the other using the results of the first.

Of course, this requires thinking beyond "join all".

SQL Servers support "distributed queries". You can get to MySQL via ODBC from SQL Server.
