IDTSExternalMetadataColumnCollection100 IDTSExternalMetadataColumnCollection100 IDTSExternalMetadataColumnCollection100 Interface


Contains a collection of IDTSExternalMetadataColumn100 objects that represent the columns of an external data source.

public interface class IDTSExternalMetadataColumnCollection100 : System::Collections::IEnumerable
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibType(System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibTypeFlags.FDual | System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibTypeFlags.FDispatchable)]
public interface IDTSExternalMetadataColumnCollection100 : System.Collections.IEnumerable
Public Interface IDTSExternalMetadataColumnCollection100
Implements IEnumerable


A data flow component populates and uses this collection to validate the columns in its IDTSInputColumnCollection100 or IDTSOutputColumnCollection100 when the ValidateExternalMetadata property is false or when the SSIS Designer is in offline mode.

The collection typically represents the columns of an external data source used by a source or destination component. Use of the collection allows the component to perform validation without an expensive, time-consuming round trip to the source itself.
