OdbcConnection.Open Method

Opens a connection to a data source with the property settings specified by the ConnectionString.

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

public override void Open ()
public void Open ()
public override function Open ()
Not applicable.

The OdbcConnection draws an open connection from the connection pool if one is available. Otherwise, it establishes a new connection to the data source.

NoteNote:

If the OdbcConnection goes out of scope, the connection it represents does not close automatically. Therefore, you must explicitly close the connection by calling Close, Dispose, or by placing the connection within a Using statement.
