Migrating Btrieve data to SQL 2000

Migrating Btrieve data to SQL 2000

I have been assigned to migrate an old btrieve database to SQL 2000 and I have no idea where to start. I do know that there are programs on the market that will do this for me, but they are not cheap. Does anyone have any experience in this? Would I be better off purchasing a package product or doing the migration on my own?

Any help would be appreciated.

Pervasive's own Migration Toolkit, a product of the merger with Data Junction, may be an ideal solution.

To understand how to access Btrieve from ODBC, however, you should start with my white paper at -- click on the link for accessing Btrieve from ODBC for more information.

There's a piece of shareware called btsearch that might be of help also
