how to use defncopy?

I am trying to use "defncopy to copy out | in the view, rules, default and triggers from one database to another.

for example
defncopy -Usa -P out /tmp/pb_cattbl.dcopy hf_prod pb_cattbl

What' wrong for the above statement?

Your syntax appears fine.
Without knowing what exactly the problem is, it's hard to help, but...

1. Maybe the /tmp directory doesn't exist or have enough space.
2. If you're running this on a workstation, you may need to include the -S option (server name).
3. I'm sure you checked this one, but perhaps the DB name or object name is misspelled.
4. The Sybooks help says that defncopy won't work with objects created with Report Workbench
5. I'm just guessing, but pb_cattbl looks like a powerbuilder utility object.  You may not need to copy it.  Just get PB to create a new one.
