Im using isql to access the sybase server.
Im using this syntax,
isql -w 130 -i in.txt -o out.txt
However, isql says it cant open in.txt. I assume this is because it cant find it. What path should this file be put at so that the isql can locate it?

It should be in the directory you runnning isql from , but I would still suggest to put full path, just to make sure you are using the file you intended to use. You can also use '<' filename instead of -i filename

Ive tried using the full path. Ive also triied the following code.
isql -w 132 -i c:\in.txt -o c\:out.txt
This gives me an error
Cant find input file c:in.txt
Ive also tried -i /in.txt
-i c:/in.txt

What operatin system do you use?
May be obvious, but happens: is the file realy exists? Do you have permission to read it?

Im using windows 95
The file is a standard .txt file located on my c:\ directory
I am using telnet to access the Unix sybase server

If I correctly understood, you are trying to type this in telnet window. When you use a telnet, your computer emulates terminal, telnet doesn't know anything about your c: drive. and if you are using just in.txt this in.txt should be present not in your PC, but in the  UNIX server directory you are executing isql from.

No , unless there  is a Windows version  of isql, that you can install and run from you PC, not from telnet session.
