JET_SETINFO Structure

Windows

Last modified: January 09, 2012

Applies to: Windows | Windows Server

The JET_SETINFO structure contains optional input parameters for JetSetColumn. A NULL pointer can be passed where a pointer to this structure would otherwise be passed. The meaning of passing a NULL is the same as passing JET_SETINFO with cbStruct set to sizeof(JET_SETINFO), ibLongValue set to 0 (zero) and itagSequence set to 1.

typedef struct {
  unsigned long cbStruct;
  unsigned long ibLongValue;
  unsigned long itagSequence;
} JET_SETINFO;

Members

cbStruct

The size, in bytes, of the JET_SETINFO. This value confirms the presence of the following fields.

ibLongValue

The offset to the first byte to be set in a column of type JET_coltypLongBinary or JET_coltypLongText.

itagSequence

Describes the sequence number of value in a multi-valued column to be set. The array of values is one-based. The first value is sequence 1, not 0 (zero). If the record column has only one value then 1 should be passed as the itagSequence if that value is being replaced. A value of 0 (zero) means to add a new column value instance to the end of the sequence of column values.

With a column that can contain multiple values, it is only possible to use a sequence number larger than 1 in JetSetColumn and JetRetrieveColumn or 0 in JetSetColumn. In the current implementation of the engine, any column that was created with JET_bitColumnTagged can contain multiple values. Columns created with JET_bitColumnMultiValued differ from multi-valued tagged columns only in the way that they are indexed. See JET_INDEXCREATE for more information.
