compatibility (?) of Adaptive Server Anywhere 6.0 and Sybase Advantage Database Server

Dear Experts,

we have installed on our server Adaptive Server Anywhere 6.0 / Sybase Central.
The software we consider buying requires Sybase Advantage Database Server.
will the Adaptive Server Anywhere handle database from Sybase Advantage Database Server?
Would be great - no need to buy another license.

and the other way (in case we have to buy and install Sybase Advantage Database Server)
will the Sybase Advantage Database Server handle database from Adaptive Server Anywhere 6.0?

thank you!

Completely different products. ASA has its own proprietary format, and Advantage is either Xbase or a (different) proprietary product.

ASA 6 has been out of support for a decade, by the way.

You can probably convert data from one format to the other but I'm pretty sure you can't use one product's database engine to directly run the other product's files.

You are certainly having to buy a license to get a supported version of either product, and you can't use both as the formats are too different. This is like asking if you can use MS Excel to run Adobe Acrobat.
