    never heard of it. my google guess is IBM Lotus Syphony. Is that what you mean? if so, you are talking about an office productivity suite, not a DBMS server. it's like asking if you can convert your db in SQL Server to Excel, which will be difficult/impossible for all but the most simplistic and tiny databases.

    IBM bought Lotus Development many years ago.

    Symphony was a really interesting attempt at an "all in one" application, many of the features of which were eventually rolled into Lotus Notes. Notes is an excellent collaboration tool, a good email program, and a pseudo development environment. Given sufficient time and resources, you can do some amazing things with Notes. Notes is not a tool for the novice, it will eat you alive if you aren't both disciplined and extremely experienced.

    While Notes has things called Databases, they are nothing like SQL databases. A Notes database is more like a hyped-up spreadsheet with delusions of shared text than it is like a relational database.

    Thinking about Symphony and Notes brings back pleasant memories! Thanks for the reminder.

    according to this, it's not a database server. it's an office productivity suite.
