To create a new database (Sybase Central)

    The Create Database wizard appears.

  2. Follow the instructions in the wizard.

  3. Tip

    You can also access the Create Database wizard from within Sybase Central using any of the following methods:

    Creating databases for Windows CE

    You can create databases for Windows CE by copying a SQL Anywhere database file to the device.

    Sybase Central has features to make database creation easy for Windows CE databases. If you have Windows CE services installed on your Windows desktop, you have the option to create a Windows CE database when you create a database from Sybase Central. Sybase Central omits some features for Windows CE databases, and optionally copies the resulting database file to your Windows CE device.

    Enable checksums for Windows CE databases

    When creating a database that will be deployed to Windows CE, you should enable checksums. This helps to provide early detection if the database file becomes corrupt.

    For more information, see Creating a Windows CE database.
