Pervasive SQL 2000i DB Sync

DBConvert for MS Access and PostgreSQL 2.2.1 (http://dbconvert.com/) allow me to sync from Pervasive SQL 2000i to Access? PostgreSql is Pervasive, right?

No.  Pervasive did offer a PostgreSQL offering a couple of years ago but dropped it to focus back on the Pervasive.SQL (Btrieve) offering.  
As far as accessing Pervasive/Btrieve data from Access, I would suggest "Linking" the tables using ODBC.

I understand. Thanks for clearing things up ...


Are there any other tools to do this instead of dbconvert.com?

You might look at the Integration tool line from Pervasive.  
What exactly are you trying to accomplish (why are you wanting to sync from PSQL to Access)?

I am using an ancient software that originally comes from a btrieve 6.15 engine which was upgraded to 2000i. Luckily I have the DDF files which makes the data extraction possible. What I want to do is publish certain parts of the data to sharepoint.

I haven't worked much with Sharepoint but I believe it is possible to connect directly through ODBC from SHarepoint to PSQL.

The Pervasive.SQL 2000i database engine is ODBC-compliant.  On whatever machine will be doing the extraction, you can install the Pervasive client, then create a "Client Interface" DSN that connects to the "Engine Interface" DSN on the Pervasive server.  (If the PSQL2000i server will be doing its own extraction, then set up only the Engine Interface DSN.)

Once you have that set up, just run your queries normally from ANY ODBC-compatible application.  If you need a more powerful mapping tool, you can use SQL Server's SSIS/DTS, Pervasive's own Data Integrator, or any of an entire cadre of ETL (extract/Transform/Load) tools, such as the open source Pentaho.  (Do a Google search for "ETL" and you'll see a lot of options to play with.)
