What the Driver Manager Does

The following table summarizes how the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager maps calls to ODBC 2.x and ODBC 3.x drivers.

Function or

statement attribute

Comments

SQL_ATTR_FETCH_BOOKMARK_PTR

Points to the bookmark to use with SQLFetchScroll. The following are implementation details:

  • When an application sets this in an ODBC 2.x driver, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager caches it. It dereferences the pointer and passes the value to the ODBC 2.x driver in the FetchOffset argument of SQLExtendedFetch when SQLFetchScroll is later called by the application.

  • When an application sets this in an ODBC 3.x driver, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager passes the call to the driver.

SQL_ATTR_ROW_STATUS_PTR

Points to the row status array filled by SQLFetch, SQLFetchScroll, SQLBulkOperations, and SQLSetPos. The following are implementation details:

  • When an application sets this in an ODBC 2.x driver, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager caches its value. It passes this value to the ODBC 2.x driver in the RowStatusArray argument of SQLExtendedFetch when SQLFetchScroll or SQLFetch is called.

  • When an application sets this in an ODBC 3.x driver, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager passes the call to the driver.

  • In state S6, if an application sets SQL_ATTR_ROW_STATUS_PTR and then calls SQLBulkOperations (with an Operation of SQL_ADD) or SQLSetPos without first calling SQLFetch or SQLFetchScroll, SQLSTATE HY011 (Attribute cannot be set now) is returned.

SQL_ATTR_ROWS_FETCHED_PTR

Points to the buffer in which SQLFetch and SQLFetchScroll return the number of rows fetched. The following are implementation details:

  • When an application sets this in an ODBC 2.x driver, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager caches its value. It passes this value to the ODBC 2.x driver in the RowCountPtr argument of SQLExtendedFetch when SQLFetch or SQLFetchScroll is called by the application.

  • When an application sets this in an ODBC 3.x driver, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager passes the call to the driver.

SQL_ATTR_ROW_ARRAY_SIZE

Sets the rowset size. The following are implementation details:

  • When an application sets this in an ODBC 2.x driver, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager maps it to the SQL_ROWSET_SIZE statement attribute.

  • When an application sets this in an ODBC 3.x driver, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager passes the call to the driver.

  • When an application working with an ODBC 3.x driver calls SQLSetScrollOptions, SQL_ROWSET_SIZE is set to the value in the RowsetSize argument if the underlying driver does not support SQLSetScrollOptions.

SQL_ROWSET_SIZE

Sets the rowset size used by SQLExtendedFetch when SQLExtendedFetch is called by an ODBC 2.x application. The following are implementation details:

  • When an application sets this, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager passes the call to the driver, regardless of driver version.

  • When an application working with an ODBC 2.x driver calls SQLSetScrollOptions, SQL_ROWSET_SIZE is set to the value in the RowsetSize argument.

SQLBulkOperations

Performs an insert operation, or update, delete, or fetch by bookmark operations. The following are implementation details:

  • When an application calls SQLBulkOperations with an Operation of SQL_ADD in an ODBC 2.x driver, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager maps it to SQLSetPos with an Operation of SQL_ADD.

  • When working with an ODBC 2.x driver that does not support SQLSetPos with an Operation of SQL_ADD, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager does not map SQLSetPos with an Operation of SQL_ADD to SQLBulkOperations with an Operation of SQL_ADD. This is because SQLBulkOperations cannot be called in state S7, which in ODBC 2.x was the only state in which SQLSetPos could be called.

  • If the application calls SQLBulkOperations with an Operation of SQL_ADD in an ODBC 2.x driver before calling SQLFetchScroll, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager returns an error.

SQLExtendedFetch

Returns the specified rowset. Except for the restriction just noted, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager passes calls to SQLExtendedFetch to the driver, regardless of the driver version.

SQLFetch

Returns the next rowset. The following are implementation details:

  • When an application calls SQLFetch in an ODBC 2.x driver, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager maps it to SQLExtendedFetch. The FetchOrientation argument of SQLExtendedFetch is set to SQL_FETCH_NEXT. The Driver Manager uses the cached value of the SQL_ATTR_ROW_STATUS_PTR statement attribute for the RowStatusArray argument and the cached value of the SQL_ATTR_ROWS_FETCHED_PTR statement attribute for the RowCountPtr argument.

  • An ODBC 3.x application can mix calls to SQLFetch and SQLFetchScroll in an ODBC 2.x driver because the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager maps SQLFetch to SQLExtendedFetch when an application calls it in an ODBC 2.x driver.

  • If an ODBC 2.x driver does not support SQLExtendedFetch, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager does not map SQLFetch or SQLFetchScroll to SQLExtendedFetch when an application calls it in that driver. If the application attempts to set SQL_ATTR_ROW_ARRAY_SIZE to a value greater than 1, SQLSTATE HYC00 (Optional feature not implemented) is returned.

  • Except for the restrictions just noted, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager passes calls to SQLFetch to the driver, regardless of the driver version.

SQLFetchScroll

Returns the specified rowset. The following are implementation details:

  • When an application calls SQLFetchScroll in an ODBC 2.x driver, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager maps it to SQLExtendedFetch. It uses the cached value of the SQL_ATTR_ROW_STATUS_PTR statement attribute for the RowStatusArray argument and the cached value of the SQL_ATTR_ROWS_FETCHED_PTR statement attribute for the RowCountPtr argument. If the FetchOrientation argument in SQLFetchScroll is SQL_FETCH_BOOKMARK, it uses the cached value of the SQL_ATTR_FETCH_BOOKMARK_PTR statement attribute for the FetchOffset argument and returns an error if the FetchOffset argument of SQLFetchScroll is not 0.

  • When an application calls this in an ODBC 3.x driver, the ODBC 3.x Driver Manager passes the call to the driver.

SQLSetPos

Performs various positioned operations. The ODBC 3.x Driver Manager passes calls to SQLSetPos to the driver, regardless of the driver version.

SQLSetScrollOptions

When the Driver Manager maps SQLSetScrollOptions for an application working with an ODBC 3.x driver that does not support SQLSetScrollOptions, the Driver Manager sets the SQL_ROWSET_SIZE statement option, not the SQL_ATTR_ROW_ARRAY_SIZE statement attribute, to the RowsetSize argument in SQLSetScrollOption. As a result, SQLSetScrollOptions cannot be used by an application when fetching multiple rows by a call to SQLFetch or SQLFetchScroll. It can be used only when fetching multiple rows by a call to SQLExtendedFetch.
