The forum is currently being migrated to a new host. While the migration happens, the old server is still available. Once the new machine is ready, I will copy the database to the new machine. Feel free to ask and answer questions in the meantime.

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.
