Convert Progress 4gl query to MS-SQL query

Our progess database has been converted to ms-sql.  I have several queries that were written in progress and I'd like to be able to take my progress query and convert it to the ms-sql equivalent.  

Are there any tools you are aware of that would do this?  Or any helpful articles on moving from progress 'procedural' query language to a result set query language like ms-sql?  Need to learn how to re-write my queries in ms-sql, if I can't convert them.

Hi.

Here is one paid option that offers a free version you can try out.

My advice, though, would be to analyze the existing code, documenting the purpose and requirements.  By recreating these within T-SQL, you learn the differences in the platform and can optimize for SQL Server.  It avoids troubleshooting because the tool misunderstands some syntax, or where literal translation works but is not optimal.
