Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.PipelineHost (in Microsoft.SqlServer.PipelineHost.dll)


Public Sub SetString ( _
    columnIndex As Integer, _
    value As String _
Dim instance As PipelineBuffer
Dim columnIndex As Integer
Dim value As String

instance.SetString(columnIndex, value)
public void SetString(
    int columnIndex,
    string value
void SetString(
    int columnIndex, 
    String^ value
member SetString : 
        columnIndex:int * 
        value:string -> unit 
public function SetString(
    columnIndex : int, 
    value : String


  • columnIndex
    Type: System.Int32
    The index of the column in the buffer row.
  • value
    Type: System.String
    The value assigned to the buffer column.


The SetString method assigns a string to the buffer column specified by the columnIndex parameter.

This method works with the following Integration Services data types:

If the value being assigned to the buffer column is not a string or the buffer column DataType is not a DT_STR, DT_WSTR, DT_TEXT, or DT_NTEXT, an UnsupportedBufferDataTypeException occurs.
