I am converting sql stored procedureto sybase . i came crosssome datatypes likedeclare@mask ident declare@type ident declare@startvarchar(max) . Ident and max vachar are not supported in sybase. What will be correct alternative datatype which i can usefor sybase.
In my experience a SQL identity has been an integer which is automatically incremented when a row is inserting into that table. Typically the identity column has been used as the primary key for the table.
