    dbConnect Link Conversion

    Because legacy links are stored in formats that differ significantly from AutoCAD
    2000 and later, the link conversion process requires that you specify a mapping of
    the old AutoCAD SQL Extension â„¢ (ASE) link values to the new ones used by AutoCAD 2000 and later. For example, you
    must identify the environment used by a particular link in Release 14 and specify
    the corresponding data source that you want substituted for this environment in AutoCAD
    2000 and later. Similar mappings must be established between all old ASE link values
    and the new values that you want substituted for them.
