For a project we have to migrate data from a legacy application. This applications database is based on SQLbase. Are there any problems known in migrating from SQLbase to a MS SQL DB (Used as for the Mendix application)? Thanks!

There is no "Mendix DB (SQL)" :)
We support a range of databases (HSQLDB, MS SQL, mysql etc) as backends.
However, I think you mean that you want to import data from a non-mendix application into a mendix application? There are a number of possibilities:
If the application supports it, you
can export the data as xml and
import it via an XML Import action.
If the application has a webservice
interface, you can try to extract
the data that way.
You can build a custom java action
and import an SQL dump line by
line.... But it'll probably take a
lot of work to set everything up
