You might have a couple of options.  
The first, and probably best, would be to export the data from PSQL using the Export Wizard.  This will export it to CSV (called SDF by PSQL).  THen you can import the data to MS SQL Server.

Another option would be to create a linked server on the MS SQL Server and access the PSQL data directly.  THis only works, in your case, if MS SQL is 32 bit since PSQL v9 only had 32 bit ODBC Drivers.

A third option is to use a tool like the Pervasive Data Integrator (http://integration.pervasive.com/) to map the data from PSQL to MS SQL and copy the data across.

Is this a one-time extract, or do you need to do this repeatedly?

You can easily import data directly via SSIS by linking to the Pervasive ODBC driver. You will have to have DDF's, but this is fast and easy.

If you're not familiar with SSIS, then you can use the Export Data function of the Pervasive Control Center. Send the data to SDF (CSV) format, and you should be able to import it anywhere you want.

There are other ETL tools that may be useful as well, though each will have its own learning curve.  Check out the offerings like JasperSoft and Pentaho.  Like Data Integrator, these tools are designed to integrate disparate databases, making it much easier to link information together.

I solved this issue my self by using a dts. I had to use SQL 2000 as the odbc driver for pervasive was not detected by any newer version of MS SQL Server
