OleDbCommandBuilder.DeriveParameters(OleDbCommand) Method


Retrieves parameter information from the stored procedure specified in the OleDbCommand and populates the Parameters collection of the specified OleDbCommand object.

 static void DeriveParameters(System::Data::OleDb::OleDbCommand ^ command);
public static void DeriveParameters (System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand command);
static member DeriveParameters : System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand -> unit
Public Shared Sub DeriveParameters (command As OleDbCommand)



The OleDbCommand referencing the stored procedure from which the parameter information is to be derived. The derived parameters are added to the Parameters collection of the OleDbCommand.


The underlying OLE DB provider does not support returning stored procedure parameter information, the command text is not a valid stored procedure name, or the CommandType specified was not StoredProcedure.


DeriveParameters overwrites any existing parameter information for the OleDbCommand.

DeriveParameters requires an additional call to the data source to obtain the information. If the parameter information is known in advance, it is more efficient to populate the parameters collection by setting the information explicitly.

You can only use DeriveParameters with stored procedures. You cannot use DeriveParameters to populate the OleDbParameterCollection with arbitrary Transact-SQL statements, such as a parameterized SELECT statement.
