Thanks to all that have responded. I suspected it wouldn't be possible.

The actual scenario is a somewhat big database with an auxiliary one
consisting basically in lookup tables. I would merge both databases
but that decision is not in my hands.

From my POV, the real problem may arise when we need to make reports.

The only solution that comes to mind is to replicate the lookup tables
