Hello first time user here. I am using SQL Anywhere 12 v And I am attempting to translate a customers database log. I have made several attempts using 2 different copies of their log file. The point that I get the failure at has varied a little. This is the message that I get. "... Checkpoint at 2014/01/03 22:00 Unable to reset output file An error occurred while attempting to translate the log file 'C:\Users\ACrosby\Desktop\Memphis City Cartage, Inc\ptools.log'." Any ideas or suggestions?

Can you decribe exactly what steps you've taken before that message appeared? Have you verified, that it is really a database log?

I transferred the database log xxxxxx.log from the customers server to my desktop via ftp. The I open Sybase Central and connect to SQL Anywhere 12. And then I go to Tools and select Translate log file. And step through the wizard and begin the translation.

The error message "Unable to reset output file" occurs when dbtran is trying to initialize (truncate) the output file or it is trying to open/create a new output file ... and in either case it got an error doing the operation. As such I suspect there is a permission problem on the (already existing) output file. I suggest you try specifying a different output file name using dbtran's -o output-file option.
