In this lesson, you create a database file to hold your database. The database file contains system tables and other system objects that are common to all databases; later you will add tables.
Start Sybase Central.
From the Tools menu, choose SQL Anywhere 10 > Create Database.
The Create Database wizard appears.
Read the information on the introductory page, and then click Next.
Select Create a Database on This Computer, and then click Next.
Choose a location and name for your database file.
Type the file name c:\temp\mysample.db. If your temporary directory is somewhere other than c:\temp, specify the appropriate path.
Click Finish to create the database.
Other options are available when creating a database, but the default choices are typically sufficient.
The Creating Database window displays the progress of the task. A Completed status indicates that the database file has been created.
When the status is Completed, click Close.
