We have an application in PB 6 / Oracle 9 and they want to
take it to 12.5. What is the migration progression i.e. 6
to 8 to ? Are older versions of the software available for
this type of Migration. We currently only have PB 9.
Thanks!

You can go from PB6 straight to PB12.5. You'll have to create a new
Workspace in PB12.5 with a new Target. You can create the Target from
your existing PB6 application and it should kick off a migration.

Good Luck!

The most likely speed bump is the change to Unicode strings. Migration
Assistant can help find other changes.
