Unlikely, however if its going to SQL Server via an ODBC connection, you could
try it against a MySQL ODBC connection instead. However there are so many differences
between databases that it is unlikely to work even this way. Only applications written
with database portability in mind tend to have any luck with this kind of thing, but
even then often need per database behavior defined for various things like sequences,
date/time handling, etc.
