SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere 16.0 » SQL Anywhere Server - SQL Usage » Data import and export


Adaptive Server Enterprise compatibility

You can import and export files between SQL Anywhere and Adaptive Server Enterprise using the BCP FORMAT clause. If you are exporting BLOB data from SQL Anywhere for use in Adaptive Server Enterprise, use the BCP format clause with the UNLOAD TABLE statement.

When using the BCP out command to export files from Adaptive Server Enterprise so that you can import the data into SQL Anywhere, the data must be in text/ASCII format, and it must be comma delimited. You can use the -c option for the BCP out command to export the data in text/ASCII format. The -t option lets you change the delimiter, which is a tab by default. If you do not change the delimiter, then you must specify DELIMITED BY '\x09' in the LOAD TABLE statement when you import the data into your SQL Anywhere database.
