Hi Amit,

If you want to use SQL query for dropdown, I think it's better to create a view for this query, so the code in your dropdown will be like :


Inside the view you just select data from all necessary databases:

SELECT ID, TITLE FROM Server1.Database1.dbo.Table1
SELECT ID, Title FROM Server2.Database2.dbo.Table2

And you need to add Server1 and Server2 as linked servers for the server where you installed kentico

Coupled with this, you may need to employ what are called "Linked Servers" in SQL.
