Unloading a database file or running database

You can unload a stopped or running database in Sybase Central using the Unload Database Wizard.


There are no prerequisites for this task.

Context and remarks

If the database you want to unload is already running, and you start the Unload Database Wizard, the SQL Anywhere 12 plug-in automatically stops the database before you can unload it.


When you unload only tables, the user IDs that own the tables are not unloaded. You must create the user IDs that own the tables in the new database before reloading the tables.

 Unload a database file or a running database (Sybase Central)
  1. Click Tools » SQL Anywhere 12 » Unload Database.

  2. Follow the instructions in the Unload Database Wizard.


The specified database is unloaded.
