Migrating from SQLBase to SQLServer

Migrating from SQLBase to SQLServer

Migrating from SQLBase to SQLServer

Has anybody successfully migrated from SQLBase to MS SQL Server? We are looking at doing such a thing in the near future.

Does anybody know of any tools available that would assist us?

Thanks in advance,


RE: Migrating from SQLBase to SQLServer

This may not be the answer you are looking for - but the best advice I can give is ...do you really want to do this ?  I have worked at a site where the priority was to 'migrate' from SqlBase v7 to SqlServer v8. There was no apparent technical reason to do so , other than SQL Server was a Microsoft product and so must have a better 'image'.  After many heartrendering hours we did the conversion manually , and the end result was -  please convert back to Sqlbase - its much better in terms of all things technical.  Just because something is Microsoft does not mean its better. I ended up being the scapegoat for 'downgrading' the system from SqlBase to Sqlserver.  Dont do it !!

I am on the job to migrate the databases from Sqlbase 7.5 to MsSQLServer and successfully migrated our databases . I have used ms access(ADP) for this job and works fine.

RE: Migrating from SQLBase to SQLServer

Hello! I like to know what is the technique to use SQLBASE database (*.dbs) file on web for data driven websites. I am a webmaster. I have not worked with GUPTA SQLBASE yet, I know some SQL. Kindly give you expert advice since I am really confused how to go about it.

Thanx in advance,
