Question : problem extracting column names for a sybase table
SELECT * from syscolumns
WHERE id = object_id(‘mytable’)
I get an error message “Table name ‘syscolumns’ is ambiguous.”
Any ideas? The table must exist, so my syntax might be wrong.

If you have multiple databases, try prefacing syscolumns with the database name, as in dbname.syscolumns.
Alternatively, try using the sp_columns system stored procedure instead here .
