OdbcCommand Class

Represents an SQL statement or stored procedure to execute against a data source. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:  System.Data.Odbc
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

'Declaration
Public NotInheritable Class OdbcCommand _
	Inherits DbCommand _
	Implements ICloneable
'Usage
Dim instance As OdbcCommand

The OdbcCommand class provides the following methods for executing commands against a data source:

Item

Description

ExecuteReader

Executes commands that return rows.

ExecuteNonQuery

Executes commands such as SQL INSERT, DELETE, UPDATE, and SET statements.

ExecuteScalar

Retrieves a single value, for example, an aggregate value, from a database.

You can reset the CommandText property and reuse the OdbcCommand object. However, you must close the OdbcDataReader before you can execute a new or previous command.

If execution of the command causes a fatal OdbcException such as a SQL Server severity level of 20 or more, OdbcConnection may close. However, the user can reopen the connection and continue.

The following example uses the ExecuteReader method of the OdbcCommand class, together with the OdbcDataReader and OdbcConnection classes, to select rows from a table.

Public Sub InsertRow(ByVal connectionString As String, _
    ByVal insertSQL As String)

    Using connection As New OdbcConnection(connectionString)
        ' The insertSQL string contains a SQL statement that 
        ' inserts a new row in the source table. 
        Dim command As New OdbcCommand(insertSQL, connection)

        ' Open the connection and execute the insert command. 
        Try
            connection.Open()
            command.ExecuteNonQuery()
        Catch ex As Exception
            Console.WriteLine(ex.Message)
        End Try 
        ' The connection is automatically closed when the 
        ' code exits the Using block. 
    End Using 
End Sub
