I am using a (Seagate) Crystal Report, and a network database (mdb & dbf). I am not using any Crystal Report's SQL query yet becos' I don't have a SQL server. The Crystal Report is connected to the data-source with an ODBC driver of its kind.
Now, the database files already exists, running with a business application. After i install an SQL server (MS/Oracle), is there a method to utilise the existing database files & SQL, without creating the databases again within the SQL server ? Or should i need to convert/migrate the databases to SQL databases ? If using the SQL databases, i will disable/void the compatibility of the business application.
Await for your answers.
