Unless you have replaced the built-in version of sp_dbextend with your own in-house version, it means you have found a Sybase bug and need to talk to Sybase Tech Support.

The error means a number was too large for the datatype holding it. If this occurs in a Sybase-supplied proc, then it's a bug. :)

Doesn't look like you're doing anything wrong.

Thanks Joe,  I will look at the SP a bit to determine if it has been modified

ahh...forgot all about this one.  I have not looked at the sql file yet but it is a custom build so I am certain that is the concern.

Thanks,
