Converting a Sybase database to an SQL Server database is a feat that can be accomplished, but there are a number of differences between the two products that must be addressed. Depending on the size of your application, this conversion could turn into a lengthy process. You don't have to rewrite the whole application, but there are a fair amount of show-stoppers.
However, look on the bright side: I can't think of an easier conversion between two major database packages than this one, and a successful conversion is highly probable because of the products many similarities. Happy migrating!
