DBMS Product Conversion for a Package

The DBMS Package procedure or mapper enables you to automatically convert a package of database tables from one supported DBMS type to another supported DBMS type, as well as providing the ability to change the ownership of the tables.

You can also change the DBMS type for individual tables.

If one of the DBMS types is non-standard or otherwise not supported by Enterprise Architect, you should ensure that the mapping of datatypes from one DBMS type to the other has been defined.
