 Is it possible (and if so... How?) to convert .db and .db2 databases to a SQL database.  I have a few .db databases that were 1st generated Sybase's SQLAnywhere(used in SilverStream) and also some D-base databases(generated through Clipper) -- I would like to upgrade them to SQL Server 6.5 databases.  Is there a particulare utility in SQL Server 6.5 to do this?  Will any integrity from these databases be lost in the conversion?

there are many way's to convert data, the right word is UPSIZING,
the best way that I now is to do it throu DataDump, witch is comming with delphi 2.0 +, there you can convert any type of data to other only you need to have a ODBC drivers to initial data and to target.

DickeyS,

One approach I have used in the past is to download the trial version of Powerdesigner ("S designor" as was) from the Sybase/Powersoft web site. This has very powerful utilities for reading the schema of one dataabse and writing it out in another format. If you find it useful you could always buy it!
