      Automates conversion, replication and migration of multiple SQL
      database platforms. Provides method for porting DDL schema, data,
      indexes, privileges, views and integrity between multiple leading
      traditional and client/server database platforms. Supports DB2,
      Sybase, Microsoft SQL Server, SQLBase, Oracle, XDB, Informix, Ingres,
      VAX Rdb, HP AllBase and Flat File database platforms.- 
      Works as a client application accessing the source database to read
      the system catalogs and determine the schema definition as it exists.
      Connecting to the target database, this program then creates the
      target database and schema definitions using the target vendor's DDL.
      Provides a universal mapping matrix with default data types that the
      user can change. The user can selectively add, delete or rename the
      source tables and columns before beginning the database transfer
      process. Maps inconsistent data types and writes all or a specified
      range of rows from the source tables/columns to the target
      tables/columns intact. Automates the porting of existing grant/revoke
      privileges, indexes, defined views and Referential Integrity
      definitions from the source to the target database. Establishes a
      full duplicate or a subset of a production database to isolate a
      decision support database and refresh the data as needed. Provides
      importing and exporting of the archived data at a later point in time
      back into the same database or into a different database on a
      different OS. Recreates declarative, trigger, and functional
      referential integrity in the target database.
