I want to convert an SQL database to an SQL CE database and hope I can do a query in a program to do the conversion. Is this possible or one is restricted to only one database engine at a time?

I tried using Primeworks's Data Export program but the CE output doesn't work with WebMatrix.

No - you can usually have multiple connections. It depends on the "program" though. If you are developing it I would be very surprised if the language doesn't support multiple connections. If you are using a tool - again I would be surprised unless you have a restricted version.

Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.
SSIS can be used in a similar way.
