on a database we have the problem that dbunload stops with an SQL Error during unload just before unloading the table. Another database works fine with the same parameters.

Command Line:

"%sqlany12%\bin64\dbunload" -c "dbf=database.db;uid=dba;pwd=sql" -ac "dbf=database_test.db;uid=dba;pwd=sql" -v -xx temp

Any idea? Arthur

Does an "external" reload (i.e. one using a reload.sql file instead of a -ac) reveal more about what exact database object may cause the error?

Thanks for the hint. The problem was "INSTALL JAVA FROM @byte_code"
