This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) constants enumerate values. Generally, if a set of specific values can satisfy a property or method argument, an enumerated type defines constant values valid for the property or method argument.

A development environment may support syntax completion or other programming aids that make SQL-DMO constants visible in the environment.
