ComAssembly Data Type (ASSL)

Defines a derived data type that represents a COM library associated with a Server or Database element.


COM assemblies might pose a security risk. Due to this risk and other considerations, COM assemblies were deprecated in SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services (SSAS). COM assemblies might not be supported in future releases.
