We have about 6 main SQL servers that store all our reporting data and unfortunately about 30 MySQL servers throughout the country we have to pull from daily. We have linked servers set up but I wanted to know if it is possible to connect directly to a MySQL server without it being linked. I would like to be able to open up the tables and and see the columns as I do with our SQL servers. This is just one reason, but there are others as well. TIA.
