Does anyone know any easy way to export the document, pictures etc from a 2003 Sharepoint database?  I have recent created a 2013 Sharepoint database hosted by sherweb.com and need to be able to export my current data from Sharepoint 2003 so that i can begin to upload it to my the Sharepoint 2013 Hosted solution.  The host does not support a scripted or automatic DTS from 2003 to 2013.  Since my version is so old i need to do this manually.  I would prefer to not have to open every single file and save the locally on an indiviaual bassis if i can export the data and the do an upload.  My content consists mainly of PDF document XLSX spreadsheets, DOC files, pictures, and a vacation calendar.  Any help would be great.  Thanks in advance.

I've not tried this as I use the paid version, but Metalogix have a free migration toolkit that supports 2003->2013

Thank you JamieMcAllister.  I have contacted the company to see if they do support such a migration.  The website does not list 2003/ver 3.0 to 2013 but if it does i will post back and award you the points.   Most of the migration companies that i have talked with do not support that big of a jump.  It may still work for my application though as i just want to export the files from the database into individual folders on my server and them upload them in batches to the new Sharepoint.  So getting the files out of my existing database would be good enough.  Thanks again.  I will let you know what the results are.

FYI the page I posted contains this text; "Migrate directly to SharePoint 2013 or Office 365 in a single hop from SharePoint 2010, SharePoint 2007, or SharePoint 2003"

It will be interesting to see what they say. Hopefully no caveats! :)

agreed but i believe that is in reference to Exchange and is actually a typo.  When i attempt to download the free tool is asks what the source sharepoint version is and 2007 is the oldest one listed for me to choose from.  For this reason i am waiting for a response from the company.

I found Sharepoint designer and it is allowing me to upload in bulk from the old Sharepoint server.
