    Hiya Lakshminarayanan,

    Watcom is long since End of Life'ed.

    You'd need to UNLOAD the Watcom database using the unload utility.
    ON your ASE 12.5, create database and bcp in the data into ASE.

    Alternatively you can stick to Watcom Migration Path and simply upgrade to Adaptive Server Anywhere 5.5.05 and then to ASA 8.0.1.

    If you have a few $'s to spare, you can purchase Power Builder and use the Data Pipes option to migrate Watcom to ASE12.5 without much pain. All you need is to set DSN's.

    Cheers
