Hi,

I have never used Pervasive before, and need to find a way of exporting the data from
Pervasive and importing it into SQL Express. I dont have the database (and dont want to have to purchase Pervasive). The DB resides at a client site, and need to be able to migrate it to
sql express.
so would like instruction on how to get the database into an sql file or SQL express
or even MS Access (or mysql).

Does anyone know

on the client, pervasive odbc should be installed

create a dsn on client, name it myPervasive, connect to db, test it...
create an access db (or open excel), link to table using dns, copy paste or write an update insert query using this linked table...
