Accessing Multiple Databases from a Datawindow

Question:
Using a single datawindow, can I access data from multiple databases (Oracle and Sybase)? If not, can I use PowerBuilder to access it without having any intermediate table?

Answer:
The only way you could achieve this is by using nested or dropdown datawindows. Because you can issue a GetChild against the child datawindows, you could set the transaction object of a different one to the primary datawindow and thus retrieve data from multiple databases.
