Bernie.. paradox itself will create the SQL for any query.. maybe you can 
find a way to extract the weird queries to text files and run them thru 
paradox itself, as part of the conversion package

Most of these are selects with various tests, which are not too hard to 
convert using multiple queries and UNION.

There are some that change or delete and that is giving me pause for 
thought. Maybe the only way is multiple queries in
a TRANSACTION, but that causes complications building the CHANGED and 
DELETED result tables. Mmmmmmm.

Also a timely reminder to implement "!". I currently recognise it but don't 
follow through in the join.

And I bet you had fun with this one:
