I use at present SQL Anywhere and I know that it can be possible to open a
base SQL Anywhere with the application Adaptive Server Enterprise. I
believe that it is necessary that the base was definite compatible during
its creation. I would like to know, how it is possible to check if my base
is compatible ASE.

First point of clarification is that ASE can NOT run an ASA database file.
You will have to create a separate ASE database and migrate the data and any
other code into the ASE database. To see how much additional work you may
need to do, you should review:

Adaptive Server Anywhere SQL User's Guide

12. Transact-SQL Compatibility

and:
http://www.sybase.com/detail?id=20227
Migrating from Adaptive Server Anywhere to Adaptive Server Enterprise
- this white paper was written back in 1998, but is still applicable to
current versions

Is there a particular reason why you are considering using ASE?
