The names that are returned by the GetStandardValues method are of ADO.NET providers, from the GetFactoryClasses method, that create data objects.

The GetStandardValuesExclusive method gets a value indicating whether the returned provider names are an exclusive list of possible values. The GetStandardValuesSupported method gets a value indicating whether the returned provider names are a standard set of values that can be picked from a list.
