So I just told you about SQLCMD and it is a great tool for connecting into MSSQL servers. ISQL is a very similair tool that is used to connect to Sybase. Syntax and usage are the same and it will get you to the same wonderful SQL prompt for ASE Servers. I usually use PUTTY to connect in to the server su to sybase and then isql to the database. Now that I know I can do this from my windows server, as long as I have a good sql.ini, I have been doing this when I do not need to manipulate anything on the filesystem like scripts. This is a great tool to get in the Database do what you need and get out. This is much quicker then logging onto the Unix host via PUTTY and then isql in to ASE. Try it out and let me know if you need anything. Thanks
