Hello Sachin

The terms "Incremental" and "Differential" can be explained in different ways, so the question is not entirely clear to me.

ASE has three types of dump command :

- dump database db_name
- dump database db_name cumulative (SP100)
dump transaction db_name

ASE has always had the option of taking full database dump followed by a sequence of (many) tran dumps, which was (and still is) often referred as incremental or sequential dumps. After a period of time (depending on recovery strategy, often daily), a new full database would be taken.

With the term "Differential", I assume you are referring to the 'Cumulative Dump' feature which is available from SP100, so indeed available for SP138:

Kind regards
