The forum will be down for scheduled maintenance on Saturday, March 4 beginning at 10am EST. Actual downtime is unknown but may be several hours.

The Unload utility in Sybase cnetral12 does not allow to change the collation. How can I do that in an existing Sybase12 database?

You can't change the collation of an existing database - the collation can only be specified when the database is created.

I guess you would have to create a new database with the according collation first (via dbinit) and then could use dbunload -ac to do an one-step unload into the newly created database.
