I've found the cause of the problem.... The answer I'm not so sure of.

Using the bulkcopy set to no works just fine... Set it to yes and the data transformation from SAS to SYBASE gets all screwed up.

There appears to be a problem with the data conversion from a SAS dataset…

SAS has the data values: length Format A1110003E $10 $10. 2000 4 7 3 Z2. PWXPv4.4.0-1 $21 $21. 13MAY04:12:31:41 $16 1603 8 Best22. PWEmpv4.4.0-1 $21 $21. I $2 $2.

Which ends up in Sybase as: datatype A char(21) 1.6688056315437618e+ float() 1.2222216072383464e+ float() P char(21) 1 char(10) 1.3906717621990492e- float() P char(21) I char(2)

Any sugestions as to a fix? Phil
