The binary sort order is a default in the sybase installation. This option can be changed during installation and also while initially configuring the server. After you have loaded the databases it is best not to change the sort order, since this totally rearranges the way data is stored in memory. YYou can see the info by selecting from the syscharsets table. If you are still having problems write back to me.
