Migration from FOCUS 6.0 to SQL Server 7.0

Question:
Are there any tools coming with SQL Server 7.0 for this migration from FOCUS 6.0? If not, what is the best way to accomplish this migration?

Answer:
Yes, DTS (data transformation service) is the tool for this. You will need to export the Focus data into text files, then use DTS to bring it into a staging area (a temporary workarea DB) where you will fix up inappropriate data types from SQLChar to whatever they need to be, and redistribute your data to a relational structure (since Focus is a hierarchial database and would contain some redundancy I'm guessing).
