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

Return Value

Type: System.UInt64
The ulong value stored in the buffer column.


This method works with the DT_UI8 data type in Integration Services.

If the buffer column DataType is not DT_UI8, the PipelineBuffer produces an UnsupportedBufferDataTypeException.

If the value of the column is null, the PipelineBuffer produces a ColumnIsNullException. You can check for null by first calling the IsNull method.
