Accessing MS SQL Server 7.0 from PB 5.0

I am trying to acccess a SQL Server  7.0 database across a dial-up
connection on our IP's host server.   I have successfully connected.  I
can see his database and all the tables when I am in the database
painter for PB 5.0.  However if I try to retrieve from the tables, I get
the message that the datatype is not supported.   If I go into alter the
table, it allows me to, but in the datatype column there is nothing and
the drop down has been disabled.  However, if  I create a new table, the
drop down is populated with all the usual datatypes. If I then create a
table using one any of these types, once it is created and I try to
retrieve, I get the same message.

I am trying to access data in this SQL Server db and pipe it to our
production SYBASE SQL Anywhere 5.0 db.

Any ideas?
Thanks

Kirsten,

You can't make PB5 talk to SQL 7. You will need to upgrade to PB 6.5.1.
