SyBase SQL Query Syntax

Hello Experts,

I am working with SyBase SQL Anywhere v10. I am executing this SQL statement:

select Notes from customer where custid = 100

It returns "(MEMO)"

There is long note that is stored in there. How can I view it via SQL? I believe the datatype for the column is Long Varchar.

Thanks!

Could you, please, try this statement (not tested)

SELECT CONVERT(Notes, SQL_CHAR) AS MyNotes FROM customer WHERE custid = 100

SELECT CONVERT(posnote, SQL_CHAR) AS MyNotes FROM member WHERE memcode = 2005



General SQL error.

You are correct. It isn't possible.

Instead, you can alter the table to have the Notes column as "TEXT" type and Select. You will get it.

Enable SELECT INTO option by sp_dboption before running ALTER command.
