SQLTypes

The sqltypes statement returns a set of fields describing the types of an ODBC or OLE DB data source, to which a connect has been made.

Syntax:

The fields can be combined with the fields generated by the sqlcolumns and sqltables commands in order to give a good overview of a given database. The fifteen standard fields are:

TYPE_NAME

DATA_TYPE

PRECISION

LITERAL_PREFIX

LITERAL_SUFFIX

CREATE_PARAMS

NULLABLE

CASE_SENSITIVE

SEARCHABLE

UNSIGNED_ATTRIBUTE

MONEY

AUTO_INCREMENT

LOCAL_TYPE_NAME

MINIMUM_SCALE

MAXIMUM_SCALE

For a detailed description of these fields, see an ODBC reference handbook.

Example:  

Connect to 'MS Access 7.0 Database; DBQ=C:\Course3\DataSrc\QWT.mbd';

SQLTypes;

Note: Some ODBC drivers may not support this command. Some ODBC drivers may produce additional fields.
