Subject From IB 7.5 to FB 1.5.3
Author Johannes Pretorius
Good day all

I am busy trying to see what effort is needed to move a Ib 7.5 database over to FB

But I am running into very funny problems. If I backup from Ib 7.5 and try and restore in FB then I get on a SP
an error

gbak: ERROR: arithmetic exception, numeric overflow, or string truncation
gbak: Exiting before completion due to errors

I then just for fun tried to remotely backup from the FB Server with the Fb's gbak program the database on the IB machine , this ran well but
gave the same error on a different SP. In the checked the SP. The params passed to the SP and used inside the SP are all correct non are bigger or smaller
than what they should be. Thus the error confuses me.

Is there any guidelines regarding this. Also how can I lookup or validate the Ib database that it will be able to go to FB ? Is there tools ?

Thanks in Advance
