    You can start with exploring the Linked Objects functionality: see Using Linked Objects on msdn.

    Basically, you create a view in the SQL NAV database which retrieves the data from the other database & server. Then you create a NAV table with the same name as your view, through NAV Object Designer. Make sure you put the same fields in your table as are in your view, in the same order. Then set the LinkedObject-property. Now when you run the table, you see it has been populated with the data from your view. The data is not stored in the NAV table though, but you can write code to copy this to some other regular NAV table.
