Stored procedures
The Source property can be used on:
  • a Chart control: in this case, the Source property is used to get the source of the series: Table column, list of values, ...
    Remarks:
  • a connection: in this case, the Source property is used to:
    • Get the source of a connection (HFSQL Client/Server, OLE DB, etc.).
    • Define the source of a connection (HFSQL Client/Server, OLE DB, etc.). In this case, if the connection is currently opened, it will be closed and reopened with the new parameters during the first access to a file that uses this connection.

Equivalence

The Server and Source properties are equivalent.
These two properties are kept to make the code easier to understand. In a connection (HFSQL Client/Server, SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, etc.), the Server property is more appropriate because it is necessary to specify a server name.
However, in an Access, XML or xBase connection, the Source property is more appropriate because it is necessary to specify a file.
