Hi Sir,

Sybase Version 10

I need a function which needs to check the Directory is exist or not, and IF directory is not exist then we need to create the directory as well.

for Ex: the below script is from powerbuilder , equal script is needed for Sybase ASA Sql anywhere 10 version If Direcotyexists(ls_path)= False Then createdirectory(ls_path) End if sp_list_directory is not exist in sybase 10 it seems,correct me if i am wrong.

See this older FAQ, it deals with files in general. I guess with v10 you need to either use xp_cmdshell to run OS commands or use directory servers or use native functions that call OS APIs.

And there are probably more questions to this topic here...

FWIW, as this question is still unanswered but similar to your other one, Breck's suggestion with xp_cmdshell would work here, too.

Here's a fitting OS Cmd to create a directory if it does not exist:

if not exist MyDirPath\. mkdir MyDirPath
permanent link
