ALTER TABLE [...] DROP CONSTRAINT [...]

ALTER TABLE [...] ADD CONSRAINT [...]


If you don't currently have scripts or source code for the schema to do this, you can easily automate it. The built-in "ddlgen" (search your Sybase directory) can do this for you, or search the web for "db_schema".

Building on my previous answer - you cannot disable constraints in Sybase ASE except by completely dropping them. Likewise the only way to re-enable them is to create them again.
