Pervasive question

Pervasive question

Pervasive question

(OP)
Hi,
Is there a difference between Pervasive SQL, taht is I believe the successor of Btrieve, and Pervasive Postgres.
The Pervasive SQL, is a paying licensed softwatre, and the Pervasive Postgres is an Open Source software.
Any clues?
Thanks.

RE: Pervasive question

Yes.  There is a very big difference.  The interfaces are completely different between PSQL and Postgres.
If you've got a "Btrieve" application, it'll (most likely) work unmodified with PSQL but would require a complete rewrite to use Postgres.

RE: Pervasive question

I would like to be able to create some reports using Crystal report. I can get all the tables from a Pervasive SQL DB and install them on my system. In this case can I do this work if I buy the Pervasive Workgroup or do I need to get another version. I do not need to write to the tables, just retrieve and link different tables.

RE: Pervasive question

It should work. It'll depend on what you've already got.  You may need to copy the PSQL DB to the Local machine (where the WGE is installed) to run the reports.
