CtDescribedOLEDBProvider (Property)
In french: CxProviderOLEDBDécrit
OLE DBAvailable only with this kind of connection
The Property CxProviderOLEDBDecrit allows to manage the name of the OLE DB provider (also called OLE DB server). You can:
  • Find out the name of the OLE DB provider used for the connection to a table by OLE DB. This provider was defined in the data model editor or when the data file was described by programming.
    Caution: The Property CxProviderOLEDBDecrit does not take into account any modifications made with the HConnect function. .
    This property can be used for a data file defined in the data model editor or by programming.
  • Define the name of the OLE DB provider used for the connection to a table by OLE DB (when the data file was described by programming). This property is equivalent to CtOLEDBProvider.
Reminder: HConnect is used to redefine one or more parameters of the OLE DB connection to a table. By default, the characteristics of the OLE DB connection are defined:
  • in the data model editor during the description of the data file,
  • when the data file is described by programming.
Remark: From version 19, HFSQL is the new name of HyperFileSQL.
Example
// Define the name of the OLE DB provider
Customer.CtDescribedOLEDBProvider = hOledbOracle
...
// Validate the data file description
HDescribeFile(Customer)
