CtOLEDBProvider (Property)
In french: CxProviderOLEDB
OLE DBAvailable only with this kind of connection
The CtOLEDBProvider property is used to get and set the name of the OLE DB provider (also called OLE DB server). You can:
  • Find out the name of the provider used for the connection to a table via OLE DB. The name of the provider can correspond to:
    • the OLE DB provider defined in the data model editor,
    • the OLE DB provider specified in HConnect (if this function was used).
      This property can be used for a file defined in the data model editor or through programming.
  • Define the name of the OLE DB provider used for the connection to a table via OLE DB (only when the data file is described through programming).
    In this case, this property is equivalent to the CtDescribedOLEDBProvider property.
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 through programming.
Remark: From version 19, HFSQL is the new name of HyperFileSQL.
Example
// Define the OLE DB provider used
Customer.CtOLEDBProvider = hOledbOracle
...
// Validate the data file description
HDescribeFile(Customer)
