Examples

The following example creates an OleDbParameter and sets some of its properties.

public void CreateOleDbParameter() 
 {
    OleDbParameter parameter = new OleDbParameter("Description", OleDbType.VarChar, 88);
    parameter.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output;
 }
Public Sub CreateOleDbParameter()
    Dim parameter As New OleDbParameter("Description", OleDbType.VarChar, 88)
    parameter.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
End Sub 

Remarks

The OleDbType and DbType are linked. Therefore, setting the DbType changes the OleDbType to a supporting OleDbType.

For a list of the supported data types, see the appropriate OleDbType member. For more information, see DataAdapter Parameters.
