GetString Method (ADO)

Returns the Recordset as a string.


Variant = recordset.GetString(StringFormat, NumRows, ColumnDelimiter, RowDelimiter, NullExpr)

Returns the Recordset as a string-valued Variant (BSTR).

StringFormat

A StringFormatEnum value that specifies how the Recordset should be converted to a string. The RowDelimiter, ColumnDelimiter, and NullExpr parameters are used only with a StringFormat of adClipString.

NumRows

Optional. The number of rows to be converted in the Recordset. If NumRows is not specified, or if it is greater than the total number of rows in the Recordset, then all the rows in the Recordset are converted.

ColumnDelimiter

Optional. A delimiter used between columns, if specified, otherwise the TAB character.

RowDelimiter

Optional. A delimiter used between rows, if specified, otherwise the CARRIAGE RETURN character.

NullExpr

Optional. An expression used in place of a null value, if specified, otherwise the empty string.

Row data, but no schema data, is saved to the string. Therefore, a Recordset cannot be reopened using this string.

This method is equivalent to the RDO GetClipString method.
