Sybase ASE - DDL error when exporting database

[This topic is migrated from our old forums. The original author name has been removed]

Hi, I have been meaning to evaluate properly dbVsualizer fro quite some times now, and I am, hopefully, starting for good. and I have been hit by 2 errors in the DL script when exporting a Sybase ASE 15 da error 1: when a table has a bit column, and you export the data, the data in the insert statement is exported like a string (ie enclosed in quote). I left the default as true/false and it resulted as '0' or '1' in the insert scripts. Error 2: the DDL generated for indexes is wrong ie the list of field name(s) is missing : CREATE INDEX ADTAKER_IF ON ADTAKER_IF () unless of course I am doing something stupid Hope this helps Didier

Didier, Just to inform you that this has been fixed in the new 7.1.4 version. Best Regards Roger

Re: Sybase ASE - DDL error when exporting database
Hi Didler, Yes, I noticed that the BIT values are represented as quoted 0/1 regardless of the setting. We will look into this. Regarding the index, I cannot reproduce this at all, neither with an implicit PK index nor with an explicit index. I appreciate if you can find a reproducible case, and also include version information for both the database and the JDBC driver. Best Regards, Hans

Re: Sybase ASE - DDL error when exporting database
Bit more info (pun not intended) the bit issue is true regardless of the bit setting in the export configuration; I tried true/false and 1/0 and it always result in 0 and 1 between quotes; For the index DDL, thinking again about it is probably because it is an implicit index created as part of a primary key definition which fools the DDL generator. I'll do a bit more testing to prove it, but it is likely it as I have no indexes yet on that db , apart from auto generated PK indexes. Hope this helps improving, a bit what looks like an excellent product Didier Edited by: Didier on Aug 26, 2010 5:36 PM

Re: Sybase ASE - DDL error when exporting database
Hi Didler, Thanks for reporting this. Comments below: > error 1: when a table has a bit column, and you export the data, the data in the insert statement is exported like a string (ie enclosed in quote). I left the default as true/false and it resulted as '0' or '1' in the insert scripts. This is a bug, and we will look for a solution to be released in a maintenance release. Unless the table is very large, you may use Export Grid (Export in the right-click menu in the Data tab for the table) as a work-around. On the second wizard panel, uncheck the Is Text checkbox for the BIT column to get rid of the quotes. > Error 2: the DDL generated for indexes is wrong ie the list of field name(s) is missing : > CREATE INDEX ADTAKER_IF ON ADTAKER_IF () I cannot reproduce this. Can you please post or email (support@dbvis.com) the complete DDL for the table and all CREATE INDEX statements? Best Regards, Hans
