Hi,

The Unload Database tool allows selection of data, structure, data/structure of Tables. But I cannot find a way to unload Events, Stored Procedures, Views, or Users unless I do a full unload of the entire database and then manually cut those portions out of the reload file.

Does SQL Anywhere offer a tool for this?

Of course, you can also query the system tables to extract the definition of particular events, procedures, views etc.- However, this is usually a bit (but not much) more work than to use dbunload -n.

Selecting the objects in Sybase Central and using copy is a fast way to put the SQL definition in the clipboard. One has to be careful btw., because triggers, indexes, ... are missing when you copy a table definition and in my view these "things" belong to a table.

It would be great if you could opt to get "everything".

The options -n, -nl, and -no of the utility dbunload can be used to unload database structure informations.

The data you want is all in the system tables. Here's an example of how to unload the source code for all the stored procedures owned by DBA:

UNLOAD
SELECT STRING (
          '----------------------------------------------------------------\x0d\x0a-- ',
          proc_name,
          '\x0d\x0a----------------------------------------------------------------\x0d\x0a',
          COALESCE ( source, proc_defn ),
          '\x0d\x0a\x0d\x0a' ) 
  FROM SYSPROCEDURE 
 WHERE USER_NAME ( creator ) = 'DBA'
 ORDER BY proc_name
TO 'c:/temp/procedures.txt'
DELIMITED BY '' 
ESCAPES OFF 
HEXADECIMAL OFF 
QUOTES OFF;

Aside: This will unload stored functions as well as procedures and functions are stored in the same system tables (and their entries only differ in details).
