Retrieving a table from one linked database to another

In DBLink, I have username and password in one database A, and the same username also in another database B, for example, database A to B:

create dblink orcl.acme.com using 'netsales';(with connected user)

Is it possibe to retrieve a table from database B?

select * from emp@orcl.acme.com

Do I need to do any prerequisite things for this to work?


If you have your tnsnanes.ora and database links configured properly, it should work just fine.
