I've been tasked to get all the fields in all tables in a Sybase DB. Anyone know how to do this? Thanks in advance.

EXEC sp_columns your_table_name


There's also a SAP/Sybase utility called "ddlgen" which can generate a db schema. See:


Example to extract the schema for a db:

ddlgen -S<server> -U<login> -D<database> -O<output file>

(note, the above example creates a file which contains commands to drop and recreate your database)

Note, you can filter by object type using -T and filter by object name using -N. If you use these options, the schema gets generated with "drop and recreate" commands.
