Is there any way to do a join from a table in one database to a table in another database with active record?

I know it's possible with plain MySQL, but haven't found a way with AR in CI.

Thanks

try using the database name in the join:

Code:
$this->db->join('database2.table-to-join', 'database1.table.id= database1.table.id','inner');
