You need to use the SQL 2k Upgrade Wizard (in the SQL Server Switch Program
group) to move your 6.5 database (Emerald only) to 2K. I've done this for
several customer's w/out a problem. Do not use DTS import, object transfer
or any of that other stuff.

Because the object transfer from 6.5 -> 2K only supports tables and
views. Not procs, etc.

Upgrade wizard. :)
