Re: New Question: newbie question


You will need to do from a client having such capability. The MySQL server
(and any flavor of it) cannot connect to Sybase. With the possible
exception that the MariaDB CONNECT storage engine can connect to your
Sybase data after what you may find a way to copy data to MariaDB internal
databases and tables.  I don't know if CONNECT was ever tried with Sybase.

There are several MySQL/MariaDB clients  capable of importing data from
other RDBMS (typically using ODBC to connect to the external data source)
to MySQL/MariaDB. One such client is SQLyog (I mention this one because I
work for the company "Webyog", who is"responsible" for SQLyog. The only
requirement is a functional ODBC driver for your Sybase data source - I
think this
will do.  But I don't know much about Sybase. There may be different
drivers for different Sybase versions).
