The Connect dialog lets you define parameters for connecting to a server or database. The same dialog is used in both Sybase Central and Interactive SQL. The information entered in the Connect dialog is not preserved between sessions.
The Connect dialog has the following tabs:
The Identification tab lets you identify yourself to the database and specify a data source.
The Database tab lets you identify a server and/or database to connect to.
The Advanced tab lets you add additional connection parameters and specify a driver for the connection.
After you connect successfully in Sybase Central, the database name appears in the left pane of the main window, under the server that it is running on. The user ID for the connection appears after the database name.
In Interactive SQL, the connection information (including the database name, your user ID, and the database server) appears in the title bar above the SQL Statements pane.
