How do i change the column width for isql?

SybaseUk asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-08

I am using Sybase ASE 12.5.4 and I have an unusual problem with isql.

If I log on with sa and use isql -w999, the ouput from sp_who is nicely formatted.

However, if I log on with user1 and specify -w999, the output from sp_who isn't all formatted on 1 line like above?

Has anybody experienced this and know how to fix this? Im figuring it has something to do with the login because I specify -w999 for both logins and they format the results differently.

many thanks in advance.
