Property Value

Type: System.String
The text command to execute. The default value is an empty string ("").

When the CommandType property is set to StoredProcedure, set the CommandText property to the name of the stored procedure. The user may be required to use escape character syntax if the stored procedure name contains any special characters. The command will call this stored procedure when you call one of the Execute methods.

The following example creates an instance of a derived class, OleDbCommand and sets some of its properties.

public void CreateOleDbCommand() 
{
   OleDbCommand command = new OleDbCommand();
   command.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM Categories ORDER BY CategoryID;";
   command.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
}
