SELTA@Etersoft enables programs that store data in MS SQL Server to work with PostgreSQL. It translates SQL queries from the T-SQL dialect (used in MS SQL Server) to pl/pqSQL (used by PostgreSQL).

If your application can store data only in MS SQL, and you want it to be compatible with PostrgreSQL, support for your application can be implemented.
