doing a select across databases - IBM DB2

Is there a way in db2 to select from a table that is on a remote database. I guess my question is how do I fully qualify the name of the table that is on a certain database. If d1 is the database and t1 is the table I am trying to access, can I say "select * from d1.t1" or "select * from d1:t1" or something to that effect ? Thanks much....

    You need to create a "nickname" for the romte table in the local database.
    Search for "federated" on DB2 Developer Domain for examples.

    .... and you can use 3 part names if you use db2 under mvs/os390/zos.
