Did you notice that this forum is for Microsoft SQL Server Transact-SQL questions? If you really need help with Sybase, you should try to find a site that is focused on that.

The "inside joke" might have been a reference to the DOS ECHO command, one of many ways you might write to a file using, for example, the xp_cmdshell stored procedure. I'm not sure if xp_cmdshell is available in Sybase, so that may or may not be helpful to you. Of course, if you are not running a Windows server, a DOS shell may not be available.


Echo example from command prompt:

C:\Temp>echo Help me please! >myfile.txt
C:\Temp>type myfile.txt
Help me please!

C:\Temp>
