        value:Guid -> unit 
public function SetGuid(
    columnIndex : int, 
    value : Guid


  • columnIndex
    Type: System.Int32
    The index of the buffer column.
  • value
    Type: System.Guid
    The Guid to assign to the column.


The SetGuid method assigns a Guid to the buffer column specified by the columnIndex parameter.

This method works with the DT_GUID data type in Integration Services.

If the value being assigned to the buffer column is not a Guid or the column data type is not DT_GUID, an UnsupportedBufferDataTypeException occurs.
