If you can get your data into a delimited ascii/text file ... or fixed
format file ... you can use the 'bcp' utility. This is an OS utility
that Sybase supplies for allowing you to 'b'ulk 'c'o'p'y data in/out of
the dataserver.

Check the Sybase manuals for your particular OS platform ... you're
looking for a book called "Sybase <OS> Utilities". This book will
contain info about the startserver, dataserver, backupserver, bcp, isql,
defncopy, etc., commands.
