Why aren't you using Stored Procedures?

Well, they are two different products - they aren't the same. If you
do research and planning before the upgrade, then it will work fairly
seemlessly, since there is overlap between the two products.

However, if you just have a mess of inline ASP code, inline SQL
statements etc, and swap out the DBMS, then I would expect a number of
issues unless it's a very trivial application.
