I need to use a Watcom SQL database file with MS-SQL Server,
I don't own Watcom database, so I can't read the file and save in ASCII format.
How can I do ?

I believe this will be next to impossible without actually getting your hands on a Watcom SQL Server for long enough
to extract the data.  However...

Watcom SQL Server was bought by Sybase and renamed SQL Server
Anywhere.  You can download a free 60-day evaluation copy of
SQL Server Anywhere Professional (the latest version) from
http://www.powersoft.com/download/sqlanyform.html.

I'm not 100% sure that it will be able to load the older dump
format, but being free, it is worth a try.
