JetOpenDatabase Function

Windows

The JetOpenDatabase function opens a previously attached database, using the JetAttachDatabase or JetAttachDatabase2 functions, for use with a database session. This function can be called multiple times for the same database.

JET_ERR JET_API JetOpenDatabase(
  __in          JET_SESID sesid,
  __in          const tchar* szFilename,
  __in_opt      const tchar* szConnect,
  __out         JET_DBID* pdbid,
  __in          JET_GRBIT grbit
);
