Should I switch databases inside the procedure?

How can I use USE statements inside the procedure to change from one database to another in SQL 2000? Is there any command for switching from one database to another database?

Rather than switching databases, just refer to the table in the other database directly eg: SELECT SomeColumn FROM SomeDatabase.dbo.SomeTable
