I'm an absolute beginner in Sybase and am trying to help salvage a
production database that got corrupted and now cannot be accessed in any
way shape or form.
I've tried the dbeng -f switch which still did not allow me access. I've
also tried the translation and running of the transaction log over a new
database. Says there are syntax errors. How did they work in the first
Can anybody help me with this? My Forte is Jd Edwards, if anybody needs
any help with JDE, just let me know but for now, any help with this
sybase corrupt database would be just about magic!!!

Your dbeng comment suggests that you are using ASA rather than ASE.
I would suggest trying in the sqlanywhere newsgroups rather than
in the sqlserver ones. You'll get a better response there.
