Hi All, I am new to Sybase. My team provided me two files file_xyz.db and file_xyz.log. My job is to get database structure (schema, tables structures) and extract data from file_xyz.db. I have installed Sybase Central 6.1.0 (a client program i guess) on my machine and when I tried to connect it to the file_xyz.db with default username :DBA and password: SQL it is showing "invalid file DSN". Am I doing something wrong. Please suggest.

You need to connect to a running database server, you don't "read" the db file directly - it's a client server system.

If you have Sybase Central 6.1.0 you probably have a v12 database file. I suggest you have a look at Getting started with SQL Anywhere Server which explains how to start the database engine and then connect to it.

If you still have problems then re-post here.
