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


Public Sub SetDateTime ( _
    columnIndex As Integer, _
    value As DateTime _
Dim instance As PipelineBuffer
Dim columnIndex As Integer
Dim value As DateTime

instance.SetDateTime(columnIndex, value)
public void SetDateTime(
    int columnIndex,
    DateTime value
void SetDateTime(
    int columnIndex, 
    DateTime value
member SetDateTime : 
        columnIndex:int * 
        value:DateTime -> unit 
public function SetDateTime(
    columnIndex : int, 
    value : DateTime


  • columnIndex
    Type: System.Int32
    The index of the column in the buffer row.


The SetDateTime method assigns a DateTime value to the buffer column specified by the columnIndex parameter.

This method works with the following Integration Services data types:

When the DateTime value requires more digits for fractional seconds than the DT_DBTIMESTAMP2 column supports, the data is truncated and a DoesNotFitBufferException occurs.

If the DataType of the buffer column is not DT_DATE, DT_DBTIMESTAMP, DT_DBTIMESTAMP2, or DT_FILETIME an UnsupportedBufferDataTypeException occurs.

For a complete list of Integration Services data types and the corresponding Get and Set methods of the PipelineBuffer class to use with each type, see Working with Data Types in the Data Flow.
