Hi guys,

My customer wants me to recover some info from and old .db file I finally guess was built with Sybase 9 (I found the string "Sybase Inc., Copyright (c)2000 9.0.2.3702" in the headers).

How can I open it? I downloaded SQL Anywhere for developers but it's v12 and not compatible... :(

Thank you!

Use DBUNLOAD to migrate the data to a v12 version of the database

Thanks, I was trying it... but don't know the old database us/pw. Tried the default ones (DBA/sql) but didn't work! :(

If you don't know the DBA password then you are not going to be able to get anything out of the database. If you have a support plan then you can contact Tech Support (see contact link at bottom of page) and they may be able to help you?
