Hi

I have to open a sql anywhere base but I don't know the password. There is
a means or a utility which allows to know users' names and passwords of SQL
anywhere base.

No there isn't. Password encryption is one-way algortihm, so there is
absolutely no way of determining a password from a database file if you
can't connect. If you can prove ownership of the database file, you can
open a call with Sybase technical support, and it may be possible to reset
your DBA password.

You'll probably need to contact Technical Support to get this issue
resolved. Within North America, you can reach Technical Support
by calling 1-800-8SYBASE. If you are located outside of North
America, you can find the contact information for your local Sybase
Support Center by going to the Sybase home page at
http://www.sybase.com, clicking on the "Support" link at the top of
the page, and then choosing "Support Centers" from the left hand
frame.

You can always report a bug for free by visiting CaseXpress at
http://casexpress.sybase.com/cx/cx.stm. When submitting calls
through CaseXpress, please make sure to give an accurate description
of the steps you take to reproduce the bug, and include any
files that may be needed (database, source code) to reproduce the
problem.
