Need help with SYBASE syntax

I am wondering if there are any SYBASE sql coders who can spot any syntax errors at line 355. I am getting this error message,
and cannot spot what the problem is?

Incorrect syntax near '+'.

355  PRINT ' Client Endtered Data On ' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(10),CONVERT(TIME,GETDATE()))

can you post codes from lines 354 to 356 ?

line 355 seems ok.

I know the same limitation in sql server:
PRINT format-string [, arg-list]

Open in new window

so you need to do this:
PRINT ' Client Endtered Data On %1' , CONVERT(VARCHAR(10),CONVERT(TIME,GETDATE())) 

Open in new window

Adding to Guy  Hengel's link above (for the print logic only) are you trying to do this
declare @var1 varchar(10), @var2 varchar(10)
select @var1 = convert(varchar(10),getdate(),108)
select @var2 = convert(varchar(10),getdate(),118)
PRINT ' Client Endtered Data On %1!', @var1
PRINT ' Client Endtered Data On %1!' , @var2
PRINT ' Client Endtered Data On %1! and also on %2! ', @var1, @var2

or am I way off base here?
