Hi!...
    The best thing to do is when you create a dictionary into a Clarion Win Just import your existing Database into your dictionary then just select what Driver you will use. Then you can open or browse your data.And start create new Application

HOW DO I GO ABOUT CONVERTING ALL MY APPLICATION PROCEDURES
AND DATA FROM CLARION VER 2.1 TO WINDOWS VERSION 5.0 WITHOUT
REWRITING THE APPLICATION AGAIN.

RE: Clarion Dos 2.1 Convert to Windows Base

The core clarion languange statements are the essentially the same and can be cut and pasted.  But for the most part windoze and dos are so different you really want to rewrite.  I would start with a new dictionary with the data in the windows format and the wizard a new application (or create manually) and then cut and paste the logic at the appropriate event embed points.

HTH

RE: Clarion Dos 2.1 Convert to Windows Base

If you want to convert the data from Clarion 2.1 to SQL you can use Data Junction to do it.  If you want to convert the Clarion applications from DOS to Windows, you must rewrite the entire application.  Much less painful than re-writing it in something lame like Visual Basic.
