Does anyone know if we can use SQL Anywhere Standard Edition 12 as a database backend for QuickBooks 2012 (instead of QB's embedded SQL Anywhere)? If we can, what's the best way to get the data from the *.QBW files into SQL Anywhere 12?

Good luck! I'm betting you will have absolutely ... no ... luck; it's probably not something Intuit wants you to do.

Of course, you can export all your data into external files, and then write code to load it into your own tables in your own database... you own the data, you just don't own their schema etcetera.

At least, that's what I'm betting! :)

This is a question that you need to ask Intuit.

AFAIK To get the data out of the .QBW files you will need to use a tool provide by Intuit and/or request Intuit to provide you a method.
