25 November 2012: Recent updates at www.sypron.nl
-------------------------------------------------

Many have asked, and finally it is ready: the updated 6th edition
of my purple ASE QuickRef Guide will be available soon (that's
likely early December).
This 6th edition has been updated for ASE 15.7 (which is the
version used by SAP Business Suite). This edition has again
expanded quite a bit since many new features were added to
ASE 15.5 and 15.7. Also, a section with starting points for
common DBA taks was added (similar to my RepServer and
IQ quickref guides) and some of the content is organised
more logically.
The table of contents can be viewed at the URL below. Keep an
eye on that page for more details on the availability:

generating test data for text or image columns...
