    You can shrink the database in sybase by deleting old records or truncating tables which are not used.

    Thanks for the update, however deletion and truncation will not shrink the database. How can we reduce the total database size and device size? For example in SQL Server we have DBCC SHRINKDATABASE command to physically shrink database. In Oracle we can alter the datafile to a smaller size. Similary In Sybase how can we achieve this?
