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

 

Data export

Exporting data is an administrative task that involves writing data out of your database. Exporting data is a useful if you need to share large portions of your database, or extract portions of your database according to particular criteria. Use SQL Anywhere to:

  • export individual tables, query results, or table schema

  • create scripts that automate exporting so that you can export several tables consecutively

  • export to many different file formats

  • export data to a file on a client computer

  • export files between SQL Anywhere and Adaptive Server Enterprise using the BCP FORMAT clause

Before exporting data, determine what resources you have and the type of information you want to export from your database.

For performance reasons, to export an entire database, unload the database instead of exporting the data.
