I want to execute ISQL.exe from the command line to execute a
stored procedure.  This is what I have:

c:\sqlany50\win32\isql.exe
-c "ENG=test;DBN=Testdb;UID=User1;PWD=pass"
-d "User1.TestStoredProcedure"

This works fine until it gets to the -d parameter. What do I need to be
able to execute the SP that's in -d ?   Is the -d parameter even correct?

I think there isn't a '-d' switch in SQL Any 5 ISQL.
Use isql.exe -c "" "<sql command>", where <sql command> should be 'call User1.TestStoredProcedure'.

With some modification, your answer worked!
I had to put the call User1.TestStoredProcedure
in a separate file (with extension SQL).
So, the <sql command> above became file.sql instead of the actual command.

Is this info. in  the Sybase SQL Anywhere reference manuals somewhere? I could only find vague references to this method of executing SQL ....

I have found this in SQL Any Users Guide - Part 6, Chapter 39, The ISQL utility (or in index ISQL, about/command line)
