I'm looking for a similar functionality in SQL Anywhere which you can find in Oracle....

In Oracle you can put all you script in a folder and have another script (in the same folder, lets call it X ). Then you just can to start (run) script X which calls the other scripts in a certain order.

> @UpdateScript.sql

The UpdateScript could contain something like this


…. …..

So can this be done in a similar (easy) way in Sql Anywhere?

If you are invoking the scripts from ISQL, you can use the READ statement:*d5e63291

I want to find a way to call several script from a script, so can you use the READ statement inside a script and get that functionality?

Yes, you can use READ within a script.

Thank you!
