Another option (One that I use) is to get your hands on a copy of
PowerBuilder by PowerSoft/Sybase. In it's development tools is a data
pipeline painter that will copy tables, data, and do data type conversions
between two ODBC data sources. I've used it to copy a couple of Access
databases to SQL Anywhere 5.5 with no problems. Just chenged the ODBC
source in the INI files and the apps fired up with no problems.
