SQLGetTypeInfo (Text File Driver)


This topic provides Text File Driver-specific information. For general information about this function, see the appropriate topic under ODBC API Reference.

The name of the type (TYPE_NAME) returned in the table produced by SQLGetTypeInfo will be the name most commonly used by the data source.

SQL_ALL_EXCEPT_LIKE will be returned in the SEARCHABLE column for the Byte, Counter, Double, Single, Long, and Short data types. (The LIKE capability can be achieved by converting the value to a character using the ODBC canonical conversion functions, then performing the comparison.)

When the Text driver is used, SQLGetTypeInfo returns a CASE_SENSITIVE value of FALSE for the text data types (CHAR and LONGCHAR), when the data types actually are case-sensitive.
