The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

I have similar code as below, in a procedure. The code works fine in the older versions of Sybase, but in the newer versions, I get the error message 'Transact-SQL outer joins are currently disabled.'

SELECT  table1.a,


FROM    table1,

WHERE ( table1.a *= table2.a )

In case you have to time to alter those procedures, I would strongly recommend to get rid of those T-SQL outer joins and use standard OUTER JOINs instead.

You can re-enable T-SQL outer join support by changing the TSQL_OUTER_JOINS option to ON. See the help. You may also want to read this white paper on the Semantics and Compatibility of TSQL Outer Joins.
