Hi Miguel,

For what reason are you trying to switch databases?

If it is for dictionary tools, you can use the alias dictdb.

If it is to reference tables that have the same name in 1 or more databases - you can user dbname.tablename.fieldname syntax, or you can create an alias for you code to use and then point the alias at each database in turn.

Hope this helps.

If not you may need to explain what you are looking for in a little more detail.
